Downloaded item Movement

Postby Ben Kenobe » Fri Jul 20, 2012 5:10 pm

Although a registered Newsbin user I used Newsrover mostly and for quite some time (not going into why here) needless to say I have been back in the Newsbin user fold for 7 months now and the feature I miss the most is the ability to select a block of 'files' from a list of downloaded items and move them to a folder elsewhere on the system.

A) I don't want hundreds of 'topic' folders under newsbin that I must enter one at a time to copy the files out of.

B) I don't want to copy to an image database.

C) I don't want to copy to an SBZ file.

I want to select a block of related files from the files list grid and move the entire selection in one go to a folder elsewhere, right now I'm forced to either do 'A' above or to trawl through the download folder trying to tie a filename to a newsgroup download - a royal pain in the posterior.
