for a single cell content to drag you need to:

  • click the cell (keep mouse key pressed)
  • move cursor one cell down (or up, right, left - doesn't matter) and move cursor back (still mouse key pressed - and you'll see the cell highlighted with some background color).
  • Release mouse key and click mouse once more
  • Now drag the cell content to the new location

Hope that helps.
