Dragging and Dropping Between Two Open Drawings

I cannot get this feature of 2013 to work for me.  When I grab a selected item and drag it to the new drawing window, I get at round circle with a line through it or sometimes I get a command that says invalid.  It did work once but never again.  This should be simple but I must be doing something wrong.

What are you trying to drag and drop between open drawings.

Autocad Architecture objects such as walls, windows etc. can be dragged and dropped.

Blocks can also be dragged and dropped. Named Views can be dragged and dropped.

 

Plain autocad stuff such as lines and circles can't do and you get the cirle with the line warning.

.... in which case copy/paste is an option to use instead.

Thank you for your reply.  I was trying to drag and drop a whole floor plan and it would not go from the original document to a new drawing screen.  After a short time, I rebooted my whole system and it has been working fine ever since.  Some sort of computer glitch I guess.  Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my post and attempt to help me with this matter.
