Close Menus and Cancel List Row Operations
Drag and Drop uses particular "Drop Targets". These are areas on the Map that:
▪ are highlighted in yellow when the cursor passes over them
If there is no yellow highlighting, the drop does not occur.
This ensures that Map Parts are only added in their correct locations.
And since this is a relatively new application...
