in DragText v3.9. Some of the problems described below involve "adverse

- On slower or heavily loaded systems, windows
may not be repainted completely after being raised or lowered. To force
an update, use the Redisplay hotkey (letter 'D' by default). When the
drag concludes, the screen will be updated automatically.
- There are limitations on the Environment feature,
depending on how a program object is used. This only affects
OS/2 programs, not DOS and WinOS/2.
You can work around this by using substitution variables (e.g. %PATH%)
to copy required values from the global environment.
- if you open the object directly, this feature will work as
expected: the WPS will construct an environment for the
program by merging your entries with the global environment.
- if you drop a file on this object, or open a file associated
with this object, the WPS will only use your entries and will
not construct a complete environment.

- Dragging from a shadow of DTClip placed on these toolbarsproduces no results
because they overrides DTClip's attempt to handle the drag.
Use a copy of DTClip placed on the Desktop or another toolbar.
Or, open a DTClip viewer window and drag from there.
