Topic "COPY and MOVE"

The copy shortcut key (F5) and the move shortcut key (F6) are too close together. I have on multiple occasions moved files (when I intended to copy files) from localhost to a remote FTP. It is miserable to attempt to find out which files I need to copy back fron the remote FTP, especially when I'm working with only new and updated file transfers.

Additionally, the copy and move buttons are too close together. Either isolate the access of these two seemingly identical functions or customize the popup box of one of them so that we can tell which is which prior to making a terrible mistake.

Thank you. Yes, this is a recurring issue.

These are standard shortcuts for these actions for two-panel file managers.

What popup box do you mean?
