Sorry if this is discussed elsewhere but I have searched and searched to see if there is any report of this problem - but found nothing.
Dragging a group of image files on to filemanager to do multiple upload just causes the first of the images to display in the browser window, rather than add to the file manager.
I have checked that the user has the appropriate access un Admin->Config->Permissions for functions.
When dragging IE shows a shortcut icon just prior to dropping, Firefox and Chrome show a small + icon, but all just display the first file in the group as an image in the window.
Is it something obvious?
I managed to do this without any problem at all in 5.2.375.133. Which version are you running on? If I remember rightly, there was a problem when dragging and dropping to the file manager in 5.1. The files had to be dropped right at the top of the file manager, above even the first folder, if you have any. Try this and get in touch again if it doesn't help. (I'm presuming you have installed the latest version of the Client Components.)
Yes thanks. Actually, I believe rather than re-image (which was a long while ago) it was upgrade of browser (IE6->7, slow moving corporation) that dropped the active-X activations. Something to be wary of perhaps.
