Drag and drop of files and folders ceased working iOS

Steps to reproduce

Drag and drop of files and folders has always been a two click process on iOS, first press opens a menu and second press allows drag and drop into another folder. Drag and drop has ceased working and only opens the menu. Drag and drop tested on iPad and it continues to work.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

The ability to drag and drop a file or folder into another folder

Actual result

The menu opens each time instead of allowing drag and drop on the second time.

Additional information

Bumping for visibility. I’ve been having the same problem.

I don’t understand.
On mobile, first you tap and hold and then you drag to another folder.

When I tap and hold, instead of moving the files around, this menu comes up.

I don’t understand it either.

We have made several changes to the UI in 1.6. Let me know if you still have this issue when you get it.

I’ve been experiencing this too (including it still working on iPad); I’m not on 1.6 yet so will see how it goes then. The description of how it used to work isn’t familiar to me — I was vaguely under the impression I had to press for the right length of time or something.
