Comment OS X mouse quirkiness in Finder (Score 2, Informative) 546

The deselection you describe is the fault of a spectacularly stupid decision on the part of the Finder's designers.

In List View, if your drag-click starts on the icon or text label of a file, it is interpreted as a drag-and-drop operation; if you start the drag on a blank area in the window, EVEN IF IT IS PART OF THE SELECTION, the Finder interprets it as the start of a new selection.

I can't figure out why they thought this was a good idea, but this is why some drag-and-drops turn into deselections; you have to start dragging a file's icon or name.

I admire the attempt. Unlike the above-anonymous cowards...

It would be nice to make a client that could do AIM, ICQ, dynamic DNS, etc. Put that in a 32x32 icon and stick it in wharf, and you got one kick-ass project.

Keep up the good work...
