Well, dragging node templates from yEd's palette into yEd's editor area should always work. What does happen if you try to do that? On what operating system are you using yEd?

That said, if you install yEd for the first time, creating nodes by clicking on the background is deactivated. You may activate this feature in "File" -> "Preferences", tab "Editor", option "Create Node on Background Click".
