Bug Description

When dragging a icon, sticky edges should not apply (even if they are switched on in system settings).

This is because the Launcher automatically reveals as soon as the drag starts, and therefore the sticky edge behaviour is not required to reveal the Launcher.

@John what about the 'drag behind the Launcher' interaction?

John Lea (johnlea) wrote :

@andyrock; I think the 'drag behind the Launcher' will have to be disabled for Launchers which are positioned between two monitors. The reason for this is that the pressure required to successfully trigger the 'drag behind the launcher' interaction will be very frustrating for all users who wish to drag an icon or some selected text between two monitors. Dragging an icon or selected text between two monitors is a much more frequent action than dropping an icon behind the Launcher, so we don't want to inconvenience the vastly more frequent use case.

Basically dropping behind the launcher is very infrequent, and dragging between monitors is very frequent, so the more frequent action should take precedence in this conflict.
