I'm using FileZilla 188.8.131.52 under Windows XP, and I've noticed that it always shows a Copy icon (indicated by a small [+] near the cursor arrow) for drag and drop even when doing a Move.
Normal Windows drag-and-drop conventions are: Show a [+] during a Copy, and just a regular arrow during a Move. Dragging a file between file explorer windows causes a Move if the target window is on the same filesystem, and a Copy if the target is on a different filesystem. Holding down the CTRL key overrides this default and always generates a Copy. Similarly, holding down SHIFT always generates a Move.
FileZilla doesn't appear to follow this convention. Even if I hold down SHIFT when I drag files between directories in the right hand panels, FileZilla always Moves the file despite showing the copy icon. Dragging a file between left and right panels always does a Copy operation and correctly displays the [+] icon by default, but it does this even if SHIFT is held down.
Could we please have FileZilla follow the Windows file explorer drag and drop conventions, when running on Windows?
