How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Can't drag the attachments

In the new version I can't drag the attachments between a windowed mail to antoher new messages.
Now I need to save the attachment and then to reattach to the new message.

    Drag-and-drop still doesn't work on 28/05/2019. This worked fine (and was a great feature) in previous versions!

    This functionality still doesn't work as at 15.03.2019. Cannot drag documents (Word, Excel, Adobe etc.) from PC folders or emails to calendar appointments.

    Very busy to look at - Cannot find how to insert my signature line - it was automatic on the previous version. Cannot seem to click and drag an attachment to desktop - must download first?

    I commonly will send images to clients from previous emails I have already sent. I can no longer drag & drop images from one email to another. It forces me to switch back over to the old version, very cumbersome.

    Old Outlook allow us to drag attachment from between windowed mail to another new template., new Outlook doesn't. Re-attach is inconvenient

    This was already mentioned, but it was set as "completed", when in fact it does not work in the new system. We need the function to be able to drag attachments from one windowed email to another new message. Again, this is not working and has not been completed as previously said.

    Dragging attachments to calendar appointments isn't working - it just opens the attachment. I need to attach PDF and Word docs (i.e. invitations, tickets, meeting agendas) to calendar appointments quickly and easily.

    Not sure if it is just using the Chrome browser, but this functionality definitely does not work. It used to work, but not on "the new outlook"

    Philip, This functionality DOES NOT work with the new outlook format as you stated in your comment on this thread on 2/15/19. You cannot drag and drop from one email to a new message, as you could in the previous online outlook. Please add this function back.
