I read an applevis post that told how to double tap and hold with a btkb.
Then you hit another key combination to end that condition.
Maybe between those two events we could move stuff with arrow keys?

Seems like the double tap and hold was shift-control-option-m.

Hi i'm not sure if the following key combination work for iOS using Bluetooth keyboard, the key combinations for Mac OS to Drag and Drop are the following
drag VoiceOver , (Control plus option plus ,)
Drop voiceOver . ( Control plus option plus .)

Thank you so much for the suggestions, brian and marco,
I tried those but they did not work,
For instance,
The command for double tap and hold is

V o plus shift plus m
And the command to end it is
V o plus spacebar
But how to drag?

I have never tried it but I would assume that you will need to change the focus to where you want the item dragged into before dropping.
