XShelf - Do the same thing with copy, paste
Authored by: mahuti on Jun 10, '03 11:52:39AM

This seems like a bit more trouble than it's worth. If you are having all that trouble, why not just copy, paste into the new location. It has the same functions without having to move the mouse anywhere. Find a file, or group of files. Copy, find the end location, paste. If you decide not to paste, the original files stay where they were.

Yes, this is what I am currently doing, but you always
have to go back and delete the original...or you have
duplicates which can get very confusing...

If I am not mistaken you could use the Option key to change the behaviour from "paste" to "paste an delete original".

Or maybe you'd actually change from "copy" to "cut".

I think it was possible in the 10.0.x time.

To bad though - it's one of the features I really like in "the other OS" ;-) TvE

Yeah, what I'd like to see is a contextual menu item that is "Send To ..." -- like the old win9x power toy contextual menu extra.

It would bring up a directory selection browser to pick the destination, and have a checkbox for moving versus deleting.
