    Thank you for your help. Somehow or other everything spontaneously started to work again.  I did quit iMovie but I did not have to shut down my computer.  You are correct about the fact that I had just uploaded a bunch of new stuff because I had downloaded the Maverick system.  Then I had to upgrade bunches of iWork stuff.  That is when the problem started.  Next time I will just quit whatever and maybe even shut down to see if everything is resolved without all the detail in your thread.  Nan in NJ

    I have the same problem with dragging and dropping video clips, and have had no luck solving this by deleting the as each time i restart imovie a new file is created?

    Late comment, but I googled searched and found this page, WIll it do any damage if you permanently delete those .plist files or should we keep them? I tried this method and it seemed to work.

    As long as everything is working fine, I would leave the files as they are; I would not advise permanent deletion of the files unless you have a backup (maybe through TimeMachine or even an external hard drive). Even as of now, 6 months after my initial response to the thread, these files are still in my Trash. I have not permanently deleted them...just moved them to the Trash. I haven't experienced any problems with iMovie since this solution.


    I hope this helps.

    Same issue. I cannot drag and drop clips from Events into Project. There does not appear to be a workaround. I note that this has been a problem since the date of the OP: 2011. It's now 2015. At this point it's safe to assume that we're dealing with an "undocumented feature".  The program likely has an irresolvable issue. Since it's a freebie, I'm guessing that it's not much of a priority, and we're invited to pay for a more robust, 3rd party program.

    Hi ewalrath,


    Did you check out the response from TNethers on page 3 of this discussion? Those suggestions are what worked for me...also see my response on page 3 of the discussion, as I had to make a couple of minor tweaks from what was suggested by TNethers.


    I hope the solution will work for you, as well. Good luck.
