Publisher 2.3.0.2139 Drag and Drop images does not work on Mac

Drag and Drop images off page opens them in new windows on Mac Ventura.

I may be wrong but I believe this is expected behaviour in the v2 apps...

In V1, it used to be the case that you couldn't drag an image into the UI unless you already had a document to drag it onto, with V2 you can now drag image files directly into the UI which will create a new document at the size and resolution of the image without the need to create a new document first.

This can be justified for Photos. Why do I need it in Publisher when I have an open document?

I have no idea hence the caveat that I may be wrong... :)

Because you can also use Publisher to Open .afdesign or .afphoto files, it even to open JPG and other image formats, perhaps? 

Plus, it keeps the behavior consistent across all three apps and Personas, to avoid confusion.

I can do it, but the main task of Publisher is not to open .afdesign or .afphoto files.
Especially since the behavior of Windows and Mac is different

Hi @anto

At first I thought this was a separate issue, but as you have mentioned elsewhere, this is duplicate post.  
Please continue the discussions on this issue in your original thread, now you have located it again. 
I will be locking this thread to avoid further confusion.
