drag and copy text in the editor not working on my Mac

Hi all,

I just installed Intellij 11.1.2 on a Mac as we are starting a Mac centric new project.

On my PC I can drag and copy code in the editor holding down the Ctrl key while I drag.

It doesn't seem to work on the Mac, using the Cmd key (which it should according to the documentation), although I can drag and drop text if I just want to move it. (And yes the 'Enable drag'n drop' checkbox is checked in the Preferences.)

Has anyone experienced this problem? Is there a solution? Am I missing something?

My Mac Mini is running a fully patched OS X 10.7.4.

Kind Regards,
