#5317 closed Bug report (wontfix)

UI Issue: dragging files shows either the wrong mouse icon or carries out wrong action

Description

Currently dragging a file to a subfolder shows a mouse icon with a "+" symbol next to it and the file is moved - however in explorer this means that the file will be copied to the subfolder

In filezilla (in the remote pane) either the icon is wrong (and it should be a normal mouse icon) or the action is wrong (and the file should be copied not moved)

Minor but hope this helps

This is a limitation of Windows. The target of a drag operation can only degrade a proposed move to a copy, not the other way around. [*]

The result is that no matter what, there will always be some drag&drop operations which will show the wrong mouse cursor.

[*] This wouldn't be a problem if the default drop effect could be set individually for dataformat. Instead it is the same for all formats in an operation.
