#4202 closed bug (fixed)

Using pop-up navigation always moves files

Description

This is hrev32189.

I have a second partition.
If I take a file from there and drag it over my home folder on the boot partition, pop-up navigation let's me drill down through various subfolders. If I now release the mousebutton, the file is put into that subfolder.
So far, all is OK. _But_: The file came from another partition and should therefore been copied, _not_ moved.

If possible, a right-drag-and-drill-down could end with the usual context menu "Create Link/Move/Copy Here". If so, the context menu has to appear before the pop-up navi panels have collapsed again. We want to keep seeing where exactly a file was dropped.

Also, is there a long time-out before the pop-up navigation starts, or is that due to running in VirtualBox? It fells very long...

That part is somewhat nontrivial to handle. For the time being I've fixed it in hrev32210 to use the same copy vs move logic that's used elsewhere.

Also, is there a long time-out before the pop-up navigation starts, or is that due to running in VirtualBox? It fells very long...

It's around 2-3 seconds or so. In any case, I believe you can override the timeout by holding down shift while dragging.

Thanks for the quik fix!

OK, but why?! :)
I don't see a reason for this long a delay. You don't want to spring up pop-navs all over the place while dragging a file around, but sitting on top of a folder for max. 0.5 seconds without wiggling more than +/-2 pixels around should be really enough. (Dunno about the wiggling-part, but a shortened timeout would be very appreciated.)
