Try right click and select "Properties". One of the options should be
"Orientation", from which you can choose Top, Left, Right or Bottom. 

That being said, I am able to drag with a single left click (the way you
drop is somewhat unintuitive - it doesn't move with you, but snaps into
place quite slowly, so you may feel like it's not doing it when it is,
but just not quick enough).

Hope that helps.

Thanks, Tom
