Drag and Drop

From v1.1.0, this plugin support drag and drop feature.

  • Select a file where you want to drop
  • Drag the color panel
  • Drop where you want to copy the color name/tag

If the selected file is not xml file, then the drop text format is R.color.color_name


If the selected file is xml, then the drop text format is @color/color_name


At this moment, there is no way to detect drop target file's type. So, if you select a xml file and drop text to a Java file, this plugin pastes @color/color_name not R.color.color_name

Click "Copy R.color.whatever_color_name" or "Copy @color/whatever_color_name"
