#5234 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Wrong mouse pointer on drag&drop with serverside folders (move vs. copy)

Dragging and dropping folders on server from one location to another (but still on the same server) is a "move" operation. But the mouse pointer while dragging is adorned with the "[+]" indicator, suggesting that a copy operation will happen on drop. This is clearly misleading.

Therefore: On drag&drop, the mouse pointer should reflect correctly the type of file operation that is going to be performed on drop: "copy" (mouse pointer with [+] indicator) or "move" (mouse pointer with [<box>] indicator).

Unfortunately it is not possible to fix this to work properly in all cases. Due to a limitation in the Windows API, the default drop effect as given by the source as well as the desired effect from the target can only be set as a whole for the operation.
In order for the drop effect to be correct in all cases, default and desired effect would need to be set individually for all supported data formats in the dnd operations.
