Hi there,

I messed around this forum a lot but couldn 't find anyone with this kind of problem.

When I want to drag and drop a file into a sub-sub-sub folder, I used to

1) drag the file

2) move it over a folder (without releasing it)

3) after 1-2 seconds, the folder would open, revealing its sub-folders

4) drop it into a sub-folder.


What happens now is that, without changing anythin to my mac, step 3 doesn 't occur at all. I always have to drop a file in a folder, then drag it from the folder and drop it into a sub-folder etc etc.

Is there any logical explanation to this?

I am using OS X Lion 10.7.5

MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)
