The "Destination Preview" section is empty when organizing files with Amarok. Normally, this would show you where Amarok will move a file from and where it will be moved to.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on song/group of songs in the collection browser and select "Organize Files".
2. Click on "Move" at the top or select a format to transcode to.
3. Tell Amarok how to organize the file/files.
No new location is shown.
Should show a preview of where the file will be moved.
It definitely does show a preview for me when it asks for confirmation. Could you please check again?

Organize Files Window (Destination Preview section empty)
Is the Destination Preview section not empty for you?
Yes, it is, but that is so since quite some time IIRC, not sure if this is not a onversight when the code was last worked no, as there is a preview when you click on transcode: a confirmation screen shows up that shows you how it looks.
I don't know if removing it was deliberate, but I know that it used to show a live preview. It shouldn't show that section if it isn't being used, at the very least.
Yes, this is indeed a bug.

OrganizeCollectionDialog: hide complex options behind a button
In commit 7c780bf5, Ralf addressed bug 283361 by only showing the preview
table when the screen is large enough, which I believe went too far.
This is a bit different approach, the file scheme and other options are
hidden behind the Options button when the dialog is shown, making it much
more cleaner. The rationale is that the user usually sets up the options
once, not every time (and beginner users may be happy with the default
schema right away).
