Can No Longer Drag and Drop From GMail to Word 2010

Until about a week ago, I could select, drag and drop text from my Goggle Apps GMail into a Word 2010 document.

I have tried the internet for a solution but no luck - hopefully, the EE guys can solve it.

Try clicking a file with the left mouse button and hold then press the Escape key. Now try again.

Also check if you have a faulty keyboard/mouse button.

Thanks for the comment and sorry for the delayed response.  Unfortunately, the solution did not solve the problem.

The good news is that users (as of last week) can once again copy/paste from Google Apps GMail to Word (2010).  I have no idea why the copy/paste started working again.  Google Apps Technical Support disavowed any knowledge of the problem - but, my bet is it was a Google problem that got fixed.

Thanks again,
