MFAcceptDrop Property

Especially if you are working with design backgrounds or swim lanes (see Pools and Lanes) and want to drop M-Files objects from the left side menu onto them, it may be useful to disable the 'MFAcceptDrop' option.

Normally, when dragging and dropping M-Files objects, the contents are replaced from existing elements so that you can easily replace the linked objects. But if you don't want this to happen, for example:

  • you want to make a pool out of a swim lane by adding several people, team or roles,
  • you want to simply add M-Files objects as content to rectangles, swim lanes or other standard shapes,

then disable the 'MFAcceptDrop' option by unchecking it in the Properties menu. The shape will now no longer accept a drop of M-Files objects.
