Hi, I don't know how to drag files from nautilus and drop them as an attachment in a email window in thunderbird. In earlier versions of Gnome (2.x) that was possible - here in 3.10.x I have no clue how to do that.

Any shortcuts or ideas?

if you drag the file(s) to where you add recipients e-mail address it will be added as an attachment, a little box to the right of the window opens showing attached file(s)

That's clear. But how to switch from one window (nautilus) to the other one (thunderbird) while dragging the file?
