Description S 2011-03-15 14:24:11 UTC
Version:           4.6 (using KDE 4.6.1) 
OS:                Linux


I use and enjoy the KDE feature of the context menu "Copy to" and "Move to" for files and folders. However, there is a significant annoyance that prevents it from being useful. Since the directory listing expands by mouseover, it quickly becomes very cluttered by temporarily mousing over a very large directory with many subfolders. As I try to move the mouse down to the folder I want to move the file to, I usually end up with a clutter of other folders that cover up the rest of the screen and prevent me from clicking on the folder that I want to move it to because the sub-menus expand so quickly on mouseover. To fix this, the menus for "Copy to" and "Move to" on the context menu should only expand onclick instead of mouseover.

Thanks in advance for fixing this!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put a file on the desktop in the bottom right corner.
2. Right click, "Move to"
3. Try to move it somewhere on your system with many folders.

Actual Results:  
As I try to navigate the directory structure many, many folders appear, which block me from selecting the one I want.

> sub-menus expand so quickly

I doubt that it should be possible to change the delay for different "types" of sub-menus, so I am marking this as a duplicated of bug 179267.
