I have one PCmanFM on the left and one on the right. I can't drag files from the window on the left to the right one. This works in nautilus, and thunar just like I expect it to work. The weird thing is this problem only occurs when both PCmanFm windows are in detailed list view. Is this a bug?

In nautilus it works fine if both are in list view. enter image description here

In PCmanFM it does not.

Search the internet for "pcmanfm drag-and-drop". This is probably related to a bug in PCManFM though you should always mention the version number of the application.. – user25656 Oct 10 '13 at 2:37
I'd suggest closing this question as relating to a "bug". – user25656 Oct 10 '13 at 2:40
does this mean that if I want to have drag and drop I have to use another file manager. this bug seems to have been present since 2011 – user194862 Oct 10 '13 at 2:40
I using option 2 here for some months now :D – user25656 Oct 10 '13 at 2:42
