performExternalDragDropOfFiles issue (Mac)



Dragging files from my plug-in to the host in Mac does drop the files, but gets stacked in its internal message loop until an additional mouse click is invoked inside the plug-in.

So it creates a situation in which one can constantly click on any point inside the plug-in and drag it to the host and the original file will be copied over and over again.


I found another thing: It only happens in the AU version of the plug-in, dragging from the VST plug-in to the host works well


I turned out to be a bug in Ableton, sorry for the false alarm.
