Enable 'cut items' in the Finder
Authored by: aegisdesign on Jun 28, '06 02:46:33AM

This is one of those things I actually do miss from Windows as dragging can be less accurate or as quick as using keys. On Windows, instead of using trash as a temporary location it just grays out the icons. If you don't paste them somewhere else they eventually return to normal. I think that's better than placing them in trash as you're less likely to lose the files mid cut/paste.

Since they've not bothered with implementing the other half of cut from as far back as 10.3 at least it doesn't bode well for them eventually doing this in 10.5.

The move-to-trash-version of the 'cut'-command is really useless. On the "On my command"-pages you can find two commands: 'cut item(s)' and 'paste item(s)'. That makes this hint a real hint...
