COMMAND-drag = move
Authored by: BananaFish on Mar 16, '02 09:32:04AM
I think the reason why COMMAND-dragging a file to the dock keeps icons in place is because COMMAND-dragging moves files to a different location. Since files/folders don't technically reside in the Dock, you can't move files into it.

So, if you want to move files from one drive/partition to another, you can COMMAND-drag. This basically creates a copy of the files in the new location and then deletes the files from the old location.
