I tried uninstalling/Installing back.

Setting directory 700 permission 

umask 011 

 

But nothing help. ( I am using Big fur this date latest) July 1st week 2021.

Easy fix for the not so savvy with their terminas on Mac: 

Step 1.- Create a new folder on your desktop ( You can name it whatever you like ) 

Step 2.- Drag your PT file in it 

Step 3.- Re-launch PT 

 

This action resets the drag and drop function. 

 

Enjoy!

Hi 

I've tried everything, but this worked. you are a legand!

Thanks

Suggestion was Legend. It works. 

 

This worked for me, as well - thank you!

 

PT version 8.0.1.0064

Big Sur 11.6 running on an early 2015 MacBook

I found this resolution on Reddit and it worked for me.  Not elegant and Cisco should really just fix the bug, but this work around gets you up and going again:

 

"Just Open up and Folder, for example on your desktop, and drag & drop one PT file in this folder. This resets the drag & drop feature and your PT comeback to the normality"
