"Drag and drop" of cell does not work - KLayout V0.25.7 (macOS Mojave 10.14.4)

Hi All,

Does anyone else have a problem "dragging and dropping" a cell into another cell to create a parent / child hierarchy in KLayout (V0.25.7 (macOS Mojave 10.14.4))?

I am able to create a hierarchy through the "Instance" button in the Toolbar.




  • Any help on this topic would be most appreciated. Has anyone had these issues? If so, please do let me know how you were able to resolve.

  • A quick update. I reverted back to V0.25.6 and the drag and drop is working. Hence it seems that this is an issue with V0.25.7.

  • Hi vikas,

    That's not good. But to be frank, I'm not really up to date with the MacOS distribution. I'm not providing this myself as I'm not a Mac user.


  • Yes, I have the same problem.
    And somehow the file picker is super slow. It needs a few seconds to show up and to open any directory, completely freezing the finder.
    It still suits my needs as a viewer and I use it mainly under windows for editing.
