Topic "Cut and Paste"

Author Message


In Windows explorer one can select a file, then right-click "copy",
go to another directory , and right-click "paste" the file.
It would be nice to have this in Winscp Very Happy

I second that!! I would very much appreciate cut/paste file operations as an alternative to Drag&Drop. Sometimes, getting both windows open at the same time is cumbersome.

I believe that Clipboard file operations and drag&drop operations have a lot of similarities in Windows. For that matter, the component TDragDrop (that I *think* you are already using) contains a CopyToClipboard and a GetFromClipboard operation. Dunno if that helps?
Idea If that works, in the "Explorer Mode" you could modify the "Copy" behavior of the right-click context menu to better reflect Explorer. (i.e. to do a "clipboard copy") (then, you could rename "Move" to "Cut" and add a "Paste" operation)

many thanks for the effort, Very Happy
