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.

Could you please take a look at this online document about:TalendHelpCenter:Compatible Operating Systems to see if you are on a compatible platform?
Here is a related jira issue:https://jira.talendforge.org/browse/TUP-18888
Could you please check the solution provided in jira issue to see if it works?
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.
