Not by default - did you change the setting to use ALT instead of SUPER?

Thank you very much for your response, and I apologize for bugging you with such a minor issue. The SUPER+Drag is actually way better then the ALT+Drag (it does not conflict with Intellij debugging) - thank you very much for letting me know.
Please disregard this issue and mark it as invalid.
