jEdit vs DragThing
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 03, '01 04:09:21AM

It sounds like what's happening is that DragThing doesn't recognise that the jEdit application package is a package, and thinks it's a folder (which is really all that packages are). A quick test is to switch on the 'show file type in name bar' option in the Preferences, and see what DragThing thinks the type and creator of the application is. It should be getting it from the 'pkgInfo' file inside the package - if that doesn't exist, or it looks messed up, that might explain things.

So, it's possible this is an issue with the packaging of jEdit, or DragThing's reading of it. Either way, I'll download jEdit and see what I can find out.

This is now fixed in DragThing 4.0.1 - at least, it doesn't think it's a folder any more, but you can't drag and drop onto Java apps in either case it seems. You can get it from www.dragthing.com. Thanks for the bug report!
