Dropshelf makes dragging and dropping easier by providing a resting place for draggable items. Just drag an item to the edge of the screen, and a 'shelf' smoothly slides out.

Drop images, URLs, and text clippings on the shelf to keep them handy while you find a window or switch apps. Then just drag the items off the shelf again.

Create additional shelves simply by dragging an item to another blank area at the edge of the screen, including on multiple monitors. Use Dropshelf to drag items between different tabs, windows, full screen apps, and spaces. You can also use Dropshelf to store frequently used text more...

If you drag any document onto any applicaiton's icon on the dock, Dropshelf pops up and prevent you to do this. If you quit Dropshelf and re-open it, it starts to work properly but of course until next login. You will have to quit and reopen this applicaiton on every login to make it work correctly. On the other side, if you have a drive icon on (right-side of course) desktop anf if you want to drop something onto the drive icon, Dropshelf pos up again and prevents you to do this too.

I reported these problems to the developer, and I'm told that these problems will be corrected, but I'm still waiting.

I’ve tried other drag and drop utilities (Yoink, StickyMenu)
and this is the best.
Easy and quick and only appears when needed.

StickyMenu is hard to land your drag and drop items on it and you must command click to select more than one item.

Yoink gets in the way every time you drag something.

This is the one to get!!!
