Using Drag and Drop

Drag and drop is a very powerful feature of FTP Voyager. The process allows a user to drag a selection of files or folders and drop them onto a valid drop location (i.e., another folder).

The corresponding operation that takes place after the drop occurs depends on a few factors. For example:

  • If a drag is initiated while the [SHIFT] key is pressed, then the default drop action is a Copy operation.
  • If a drag is initiated while the [CTRL] key is pressed, then the default drop action is a Move operation.
  • If a drag is initiated using the right-mouse button, then a pop-up menu is provided when the drop has occurred. The pop-up menu asks the user which drop action should be performed: Copy Here, Move Here, or Cancel.

As you can see from the diagram below, this particular drag operation is:

  1. Started by holding the left-mouse button down on a selection of files located within the local folder.
  2. Finished by dropping them into the remote folder's listing.
  3. The drop location can be determined by the solid line within the remote listing or the highlighting of a folder that is directly beneath the cursor. The cursor changes to notify you of invalid drop locations.
