How do I disable drag-and-drop text editing in Arduino IDE? This is very annoying. If not careful, this causes code to move around when trying to copy and paste...

    I cannot find any settings in 'Preferences' that control drag-and-drop functionality. – barrypicker Aug 3 '20 at 17:51

    If you cannot a corresponding setting in the preferences file, the IDE doesn't have this feature. The Arduino IDE is really not a good IDE, so you might want to move to a more professional IDE – chrisl Aug 3 '20 at 18:24

    In the preferences dialog, there is a checkbox labeled “Use external editor”. – Edgar Bonet Aug 4 '20 at 10:58
