Unable to drag .rbxm and .rbxmx files into Studio

Reproduction Steps

1. Create a .rbxm or .rbxmx by saving an object to file
2. Find that file in your file explorer
3. Attempt to drag that file into an open Studio place
4. Observe that the file does not insert

Here are files of a single part for your repro convenience:
part.rbxm (2.3 KB)
part.rbxmx (3.0 KB)

CPU: Intel(R) Core™ i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz
Memory: 16.0 GB
GPU: Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620
OS: Windows 11 Pro, 21H2

I have all live beta features enabled

Expected Behavior

I expect my files to insert into Studio.

Actual Behavior

The files do not insert into Studio, and I see the following cursor when I try:


Use the “Insert from File” action in Model > Advanced.

Issue Area: Studio
Issue Type: Other

It’s also pretty annoying how “Insert from file” doesn’t support multiple files at once, but this is another feature request. (My use case is converting a lot of rbxm files to rbxmx without having to write a tool and rely on third party libraries to do it, having this can already make doing such a tedious task 50% faster! And adding support for exporting one rbxmx per instance selected would make it fast as a few seconds depending the size of the imported/exported stuff)


Hello and thanks for the report ! Do you still encounter this issue ?
