Using Mozilla Thunderbird 0.6a (20040416)

Works for me. I can copy either one or multiple entries without any problem.

Still broken in Mac OS X: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.6+ (20040419)

(Tested on panther, using an LDAP server to supply contacts)

1. Scroll bar does not scroll list of cards in the advanced
2. Pull-down menus of search options are blank when the line is selected.
3. Contacts do not drag-and-drop onto address book window, although address book/list icons light 
up as if drag-and-drop is intended.

Mozilla Thunderbird 0.6a (20040419)

Still broken in Windows '98, nearly the same symptoms as on Mac OS X:

1. Scroll bar will not scroll through result set.
2. Selecting all or a few (by using cursor keys and shift) and dragging to the address book window to 
place in lists or address books highlights, but does not copy the selection over.

I'm using .5b, but this feature does not work for me.  When doing an advanced 
search on an ldap, if I select an address, I am unable to drag & drop into 
another address book (mouse pointer turns into a circle w/a slash through 
it).  If I select an address & try to copy to a list, it appears to work, but 
when I close out of the search & click on the list, it's empty.

By the way, this works in Netscape 4.75 because the search returned the 
results in the address book window instead of the window that pops up to type 
in the advanced search features.

Bug still reproducible in version .7.3.

Bug still reproducible in version 1.0 (20041206).

The problem with the scrollbar not working (bug #234765) is fixed though & 
that's VERY nice!

Bug still reproducible in version 1.0.2 (20050317).  Is anyone looking into 
this?  It was reported a long time ago.  Sometimes our employees like to make 
address lists with names of everyone from a certain department.  Currently, 
the only way to search on organization name is to use the advanced search 
feature & we can't drag & drop from there.  We end up having to use Netscape 
4.75 to get this done.

If/when this drag & drop feature is fixed, I would also like to suggest that 
it have the capability of returning all results, not a maximum of 100.  It's 
hard to make an address list using the search feature if all of the results 
aren't returned & you can't copy the results of the search into the list.

I'm wondering if the person in comment 3 was just using the regular address 
book search bar at the top & not the advanced search under Edit>Search 
Addresses.

Same problem using Using Mozilla Thunderbird version 1.5 (20051201)
on Windows XP.

This problem still exists for Thunderbird 2.0.0.0 on Mac OS X (10.4.9).

1. Search for and find LDAP addresses
2. Select the resulting address entries
3. The addresses cannot be copied.
   'Copy' is not available on the edit menu.

In contrast, copying LDAP results works well on both Linux and Windows.

Actually, it *is* possible to copy on Mac OS X *if* you hold down the option key and drag with the mouse.  However it does not seem to be possible to do this with the keyboard (Cmd-C, etc.)

Thunderbird 3.1a1 has this bug too.
In my company, one of problems that I can't propose to move from Thunderbird 2.0.0.23.

Found a solution in
http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/ldap_lookup_works_cant_drag_results_to_personal_address_book

Thunderbird 3: You can search LDAP then control-click-drag the result to a user created address book.

Tested with Thunderbird 3.1.

I'd prefer a simple drap and drop.

I confirm this bug in Thunderbird 3.1.8.

It's a very annoying bug for some of our users who have the habit to create their own personal mailing lists from the LDAP directory. Once migrated on TB3, they now spend more time to manually copy contacts.

I think this bug should deserve to be recorded in the {{Key "Thunderbird in the enterprise" bugs [meta]}}.

Thanks

Forget my comment #21, moving a contact from LDAP directory to PAB works well with the Ctrl+drag'n'drop sequence.

The only problem is encountered when using Ctrl+Clic to select multiple contacts: one MUST release the Ctrl key before doing the Ctrl+Drag'n'drop action, else this latter fails.

Our users had retrieved their smiles. ;)
I would be curious to know if this is a bug or a feature... As I guess that no user will find the workaround, they believe that this is simply not possible (see: http://www.geckozone.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=107317 ).

Any idea? Should it be fixed by allowing the drag&drop without using the Ctrl key, or should there be a more discoverable way of doing this?
