Click “Open System Preferences” to go directly to the correct settings in the System Preferences.
Or you can go manually to the System Preferences and open the Security&Privacy options.

In the privacy tab go to “Accessibility” and allow dragme to control your computer. To manipulate these settings you have to unlock it by clicking on the lock at the bottom of the window.

Using dragme

The application should now be ready to use. The first thing to do is to configure it. You can find Dragme at the top of the screen in the menubar.

 

At the moment you can ignore the first three options of the menu and go directly to the settings.

 

Now you can choose the actions for the different drag areas around your screen. You can configure up to 4 different actions for each side of your screen.
You can find further informations about the different actions here.

When you configured Dragme with your settings you’ll have to close the settings window to start working with Dragme. While the settings window is opened the drag areas won’t respond to your drags.

Now you should be able to use Dragme. Have fun!

Advanced options

There are some advanced options in the menu. These options allow you to set application specific settings.
You can deactivate Dragme completly for specific applications. So it won’t respond if you drag something to the border of your screen. This will may be helpful if you’re doing lot of drag and drop stuff inside the application and Dragme is only interfering your workflow.

Then you can deactivate two different checks that Dragme is doing to determine if a drag is performed or not. You can read more about this in the Behind the scenes.
What you need to know: If Dragme is not responding for drags from one specific application. Deactivate the “PB-count check”. This should normaly fix the problem. If it’s still not working try to deactivate the “Accessibility-Check” too.
