In my new files - I cannot drag and drop. I see how it's supposed to work in the demo, but it doesn't work in my new files. I'm on a Mac.

    Hello Bill

    Sorry you have been having trouble.

    We have not heard from anyone else having a similar problem and we are unable to reproduce it in any tests, so we are keen to understand exactly what is happening here.

    First of all, please note that you cannot move a goal if it has its importance locked, or if all its neighbors have their importance locked. So the first thing to check is that the padlock next to the Importance field is unlocked in that goal – and in at least one of its neighbours.

    If the goals are not locked and you are talking about an issue in the web application Goalscape Connect, you may be able to regain the drag & drop functionality by refreshing the browser page (or restarting the browser).

    In Goalscape Desktop you may be able to regain the drag & drop functionality by simply restarting the application. If that does not work, the problem may be due to an issue with your local Adobe AIR environment, in which case the fix is:

    1. Uninstall Goalscape Desktop

    2. Uninstall Adobe AIR completely. To do this, rather than simply dragging its icon to Trash, run the special 'Adobe AIR Uninstaller' application (this is usually in Applications > Utilities).

    3. Go to our Download page and follow the steps to install the latest AIR first, then download and run the GoalscapeDesktop.air file. (Note that you may need to enforce the '.air' suffix when you Save As.)

    Please let us know if this works for you. If it does not work, please post again to confirm whether the issue is in Goalscape Connect or Goalscape Desktop and provide some more details about the error:

    • Does the red bar appear (to indicate where you are about to drop the goal)?

    • Do you see a 'X' on the cursor (to indicate that the goal cannot be moved)?

    • Screenshots would also be very useful.

    All the best
