Is it possible to disable drag and drop for decks? Often when I click on a deck, it enters drag and drop mode, and then that deck becomes a subdeck of another. Then I have to drag that one to the top of all my decks in order to undo the action. It happens 1-2 times per day for me. Is it possible to disable this behaviour?

Anki 2.1.15 (442df9d6) on OSX 10.13.6

    Unfortunately I'm not using Magnet. I'm not sure it's a bug, so much as a
    feature that I accidentally keep activating. I'd be happy even if there was
    some config setting I could use to disable it

    Perhaps some other app you have installed? Decks should only drag if you're holding down the mouse/trackpad. You could also try the alternate Anki build on the download site, as I believe it's not affected by apps like Magnet.

    I tried disabling as much as possible, but I am still experiencing it.

    I was able to move closer replicate it though. It happens when the focus is
    in a different window, and I click on a deck while the other window still
    has focus. Anki gains the focus, and the deck goes into drag and drop mode,
    even if I only single-tap (rather than tap and hold). I can try and make a
    video if it will help

    I just checked the latest release and the issue is gone. Clicking on the
    deck while Anki is not focused opens the deck, as expected. Cheers!

    Hi Richard,

    Sounds like the toolkit update has resolved the issue - glad to hear!
