Hi,

The reason that we have discontinued the PowerTab broswer is that it emulated Internet Explorer 7. This is an old browser and it had a lot of problems. We now let you use any web browser through the power tab. Your choice:) Drag and drop has never worked other than through in internet explorer, but you get all the other functionality of the plug in via the document manager that is a stand alone air app that you can download from here: http://www.projectplace.com/features/document-management-...

I think that Microsoft has done an update to the security settings in Internet Explorer. In order for drag and drop to work properly you may have to change your security settings for active x or Projectplace. Please contact support on support@projectplace.com to get assistance in changing this if you need to.

Best regards,
Karolina

Just a long call with PP support and they claim this is due to a Microsoft update!! That forced them to change the plugin. When I asked if I could go back to the old one she told me that no, this was something global running on Microsoft. I find this strange but don’t know enough to say it is wrong.

So the solution is now that PP forces all their users to have IE as the default browser. They say that we can use other browsers with a document manager but this document manager does not have drag and drop, something I have used from when I installed Windows 3.11 back early 1990’s.

One way or the other, PP solve this ASAP.

For the exactly same reason i posted the following "idea":

"When starting PP via PowerTab our Browser (Firefox) is opened instead of the PowerTab Screen. Because we don't use MS IE, the Drag&Drop functionality is not working anymore.

This is not en improvement, it's a step backwards.

Let the Customer/User decide which Products (PowerTab, FireFox, MS IE) they want use instead of patronize them."

After i posted the "idea" i had a some response from other users but now they have eaven closed my idea.... I don't like this attitude... a shame....
