Drag'nDrop to Favourites

Post by lukoie »

Coluld you please implement drag'n'drop functionality also for "favourites" panel?

So, when anyone needs to manage photos into many different folders on different drives, they can make that destination folders "favourite", and drag pictures from desktop folder or flashdive into favourites panel, instead of opening long folders tree and searching for the right folder, clicking many times to open subfolders.

Thanx, i'll be waiting for this functionality VERY much.

It would be a great time saver (at least for mouse-centric users), if we had a pane(l) for dragging&dropping files onto customizable targets...
  • File management (“Copy to folder...” and/or “Move to folder...”)
  • “Delete...” (Recycle bin / File shredder)
  • “Upload on web... ”, “Send by FTP”, “Send by Email...”
  • Applications (“Open with...”)
  • “Batch Processing...” (XBS scripts)
... like the SendTo bar in Paperport...
... or Photoshop Droplets or PngOptimizer.

Sad thing is also that we currently cannot drag n drop files/folders within the Browser to the Favourites both in XnView win and XnView MP.

Pierre please add this support.

Support is needed in XnView MP for:

1. Drag n drop of Files in Browser to Favourites pane
2. Drag n drop of Folders in Browser to Favourites pane
3. Drag n drop of Files or Folders from anywhere (in OS) to Favourites

I suspect that these may get supported after major issues in MP have been worked. :P

And still nothing. Not even in Favourites.
Please, Pierre, could you make favourites folders as a targets, where one can drag his files?
