Hello keremcan,

thanks for your post!
Yes, there has been a suggestion to introduce some kind of "drop basket" to accept text per drag&drop.
It's on the roadmap as #171.
Here is the discussion and the poll:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=142

For some reasons many users didn't like the idea.
There also was an idea of docking and hiding CintaNotes to the screen edges, what could also be useful for drag and drop.

Hey awesome news.

I also have one more request regarding drag and drop. It is reverse drag and drop. So basically it would be very neat to be able to drag and drop items from CN to another apps(either full text, the topic or the url etc), even better something like d&d into an explorer window would create a new text file based on the name of the topic etc.

Interesting idea. Could you please create a topic for it in the Feature Requests forum, so that it will be able to participate in the priority voting? Thanks!
