Version: (using KDE 4.0.0)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
The copy to and move to options for files on Konqueror was a nice feature that is missing on Dolphin. Its very useful to have them.
I agree. At least for Konqueror it is a must-have as it was available with KDE 3; for Dolphin I personally would like to have this option too (but turned off per default). I'll check with David Faure how to proceed here, I hope we can include this until KDE 4.1...
Why should be this option turned off by default?
> Why should be this option turned off by default?
To prevent that Dolphins context menu gets as complex as Konqis. Dolphin offers the split-view for doing copy-to- and move-to- operations. I personally like the copy-to and move-to shortcut and might activate it for myself, but I don't think this feature is something which should be on per default for Dolphins main target users.
Hmm... As I often use the "Dolphins target users" argument: I think it's time that I put the "target users" definition for Dolphin online on the Dolphin homepage...
Ok Peter, it's good. I'll enable it too!
...and yes, you should add the "target users" definition on the dolphin homepage :-)
Yes I should add this to KonqPopupMenu.
Can it be an option on Dolphin's settings to activate or deactivate this feature? KDE is supposedly VERY configurable.
Hope this makes it as soon as possible, personally this is one of the
old konqueror features I miss most in version 4.0
First I should say that I used to move / copy all my files with this menu. When I had to use XP or now KDE4 that is one of the biggest things I miss. I don't see why the "target user" should not have this feature by default. In my opinion it's a very elegant way to move or copy files.
When you think that the menu gets overcrowded, why not put it under "Actions"?
SVN commit 792844 by dfaure:
"Copy To" / "Move To" submenus are back - at least in konqueror, but KonqCopyToMenu can be used in dolphin too.

SVN commit 792995 by ppenz:
Thanks to David Faure the 'Copy To' and 'Move To' menus in the context menu can also be used by Dolphin now :-) In opposite to Konqueror the sub menus are turned off per default.
Minor issue: the Dolphin context menu should take care about the protocol capabilities (copy, move, delete, ...) like in konq_popupmenu (I'll fix this before 4.1).

Everyone on this bug, what do you think about the suggestion in http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71876
about merging "copy to" and "move to" into a single menu?
Important: please answer in #71876, not here.
David: I've just answered to the bug #71876.
