Mac OS X Drag Delay

I've set mine to 1 millisecond, thanks to Mr. Knight:

defaults write -g NSDragAndDropTextDelay -int 1


sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist NSDragAndDropTextDelay -int 1

  1. mine too!

    thanks for the tip. that's bugged me for a while.

  2. I wish Apple would fix this stupid inconsistency between Cocoa and Carbon. (The best thing to do would be to implement NSDragAndDropTextDelay in Carbon, and then provide a way to set it. Or disable the damn delay entirely.)

  3. Thanks!

    Didn't think it could be changed but it was definitely bugging me.
