Spring-loaded groups (or something like them) work in List, Split, and Three Panes views. Not sure why not in Icons and Columns views. They might not make sense in Tags view but my experience there is limited so I could be wrong.
It generally depends on where the destination group is. I tend to use b To[/b] from the Actions menu relatively often, like Right-Click but more reliable with my Mighty Mouse.
The Groups & Tags panel (Tools > Show Groups & Tags (Control-Command-G) can be a convenient drop target; Bill DeVille has frequently mentioned/suggested using it.

Actually, they don’t. I drag an item from the global InBox over to and on top of one of my Open Databases, but the Database does NOT expand to show my folders in the middle panel; so there’s no way to move the item.
HOWEVER, spring loaded folders that auto-expand DO work in the Groups & Tags panel.
Wow, this panel is AMAZING! All the folders ARE spring loaded to open AND collapse!!! TOTALLY AWESOME.
So Control-Command-G opens up the Groups & Tags panel. OK. But what about putting an icon for that on the toolbar? The customize toolbar feature shows so many different icons. Is there one for bringing up the Groups & Tags panel?
Actually, they do… for groups within those views I mentioned, based on my testing before posting. But databases listed under OPEN DATABASES in the sidebar aren’t spring-loaded drop targets, if that’s what you meant.
