Support Drag and Drop for Screen Elements

I see two basic aspects of this:
1) Just saying "allow users to drag this" on elements/containers/groups, and they can move them around anywhere on screen just by doing that.
2) Define a "drop target" or more that when a draggable element is dropped on it results in a state change that I can define.

        This feature is absolutely essential for us here at wix.com (especially the second aspect - with the target area). Most contemporary dashboards and app panels have such functionality. Axure RP has such a feature but it’s a pain….

        We are working on a lot of drag and drop functionality now and these are the screens where prototypes are particularly useful to define what happens when a user moves an entity from one place to another on the screen.

        It would be nice to have this functionality even within the same UI element. For instance making a repeaters items sortable via drag & drop functionality.

        I absolutely agree with this. We're seeing this a lot in-house with some concepts where we want to be able to assign multiple tasks to someone, can select a bunch and drag onto the users picture or vice versa. This would be really powerful. Right now we have to fake it out or tell them what would happen.

        It's a common interaction for desktop and mobile applications. A must have for interaction design.

        Yes!! YES!!! No one else supports this type of functionality, and we need to test it ALL the time in mobile app and game development.
