Vuo version: 

OS version: 

  • Mac OS 10.9

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Open the editor
  2. drag an image file from the desktop to the editor
  3. nothing happens

How did the result differ from what you expected?: 

In QC, dropping an image file onto the editor canvas created nodes with either embedded data or auto-generated paths. This is a nice time-saving feature.

Other file types also did stuff, but images is one of the easiest instances.

When did you first notice this bug?: 



Hi, @cwright. Yep, that's on

Hi, cwright. Yep, that's on the way. In the upcoming Vuo 0.9.0 release (see the roadmap), we've implemented the ability to drag and drop image, movie, 3D scene, audio, and PBMesh files.

You'll be able to drag files onto a blank spot on the canvas to instantiate a new node, and you'll be able to drag files onto text ports to change the port value. By default it uses a relative path between the composition and dragged file, but you can hold Option to force an absolute path. And you'll be able to drag multiple files at once.
