Allow drag&drop uploads for documents to the modern document library webpart
Modern document library webpart does not allow drag&drop document upload. Our clients liked this feature very much in classic style. Any upgrades to come, as the webpart is still in 'preview'?

This seems to work now!
This is a simple yet powerful functionality. I know I have previously been able to do this, so unsure why this is no longer possible.
Drag and drop seems to be a basic function that users expect on any application. We expect features to be enhanced not taken away! Businesses use these apps because of the time they save users, this omission of the drag drop functionality causes time burn.
I find the omission of this feature puzzling. Isn't drag and drop one of the most familiar hallmark features of any Windows based app? I feel lost! Please bring back this feature!

A good friend and obviously smarter person than I shared this hack with me to get around this in the short term: " The work around I found is to use the Embed web part on the Modern page and use an iframe to display the actual aspx page of the doc lib, I use this trick to show a full calendar too! Configure a view you want to use while you are on the doc lib page, the only challenge maybe that it tries to trigger the information panel on the right side to display your options."
