A fix for drag-and-drop not working for Photoshop Apps
Have you ever done a reinstall of OS X using 'archive and install,' and then found that you can't drag-and-drop a file onto Photoshop's dock icon? This one bit me this weekend, and after much digging I found the solution and thought I'd share a simplified version here in case this has happened to others.

If you have this problem, you're most likely missing a single key file called Adobe Unit Types, which needs to reside in the top-level Library -> ScriptingAdditions folder (create the ScriptingAdditions folder if necessary). Then just drag Adobe Unit Types from the same location in your Previous System folder into the current Library -> ScriptingAdditions folder (quit all Adobe apps first), and you're done.

Brilliant! I had been flummoxed by this problem, and I am delighted to have a solution. For those who might have deleted their "Previous System" files, it looks like the required file can be found here.

Yes, this fix also solves the double-click problem.

It's on the Adobe support site. Caught me twice while upgrading clients' systems.

Our users also had a problem a while back (I forget what the problem specifically was) and this was the fix as well.
