Why Can’t I Hightlight And Drag Text In Outlook.com?

I have noticed since we changed to Outlook when I compose a letter and I highlight a word and try to place it to a different position by dragging It won’t work. Only way is can be done is to copy and paste it won’t drag into other position. Am I doing something wrong or that is the way it works now and if so why? Many thanks.

Susanne, you aren’t doing anything wrong.  According to Microsoft, this feature is not available in Outlook.com.   There was no mention of why they dropped the feature. They suggest that people who miss this feature head on over to their feedback page and leave them a message to complain.  Here’s the link to the Feedback page, if you’d like to drop them a line.
