Mac OS w Talend 6.4 -- right-click & drag does not work

[NOTE: Couldn't see another forum where such a question seemed to belong.  A search was not productive.]

 

Running Talend 6.4.1 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6.  Right-click-and-drag on a component does not work.  The right-click always brings up the context menu no matter what.  The only thing that works is to right-click to bring up the context menu, then select "Rod > Main".  But that will get old, real fast.

 

An answer to this old post How to link components in jobdesign on MAC OS X says to hold the control key, but I've tried control, option, command and fn -- and every combination of those keys -- and it still just brings up the context menu.

OK, I just tested this on a Windows machine. In nearly 10 years of using Talend I have never used this. I honestly don't think you are missing anything. But it probably should be documented if people are looking for it.

It is not helpful when I'm directed to check out a story that is "related" only because they both talk about macOS or OS-X.  That story has nothing to do with the issue I reported.

I'm using a MacBook Pro with High Sierra (was previously using Sierra) and have not experienced this....if I understand your issue correctly. I am currently using 6.5, but have just tested 6.4. Simply clicking on the trackpad with 1 finger allows me to drag components (in both 6.4 and 6.5), using 2 fingers is required for the component menu. Am I missing something? The Mac version does have its quirks, but I'm not experiencing this one. Have  you always had this issue? Sometimes (even on Windows) the Studio can get corrupted.

@rhall_2_0: Having used Talend for a while now, my muscle memory has adjusted to how this works.  I now feel it is a documentation issue not a defect in the product.

 

This original post came from going through several of the tutorials which (as noted in the link to the article I included originally) refer to "right-click-and-drag".  However, given that description, it didn't operate as expected.  Rather than "right-click-drag" it is actually "right-click, select option, and drag" -- which, I think, is the same thing you are describing.  And this works fine but given the description, I was expecting different behavior.
