I was wondering if you could help with a workflow issue I have around moving files efficiently.
My folders are organised into clients, and within that, there are folders for each project, and a notes folder in each of those.
When processing the inbox, I’ll often find that Classify gives me a hit on the right client, but not exactly the right notes folder. So I tend to just hit Ctrl-C and at least put it in the root of that client.
I then jump to that note in its new location (I do back, then command-r to reveal it, once moved). Finally, I want to drag this into the Notes folder.
Quite often, there are lots of files in the current folder, and in order to drag the file up to Notes, I have to scroll while dragging. It’s slow and error-prone.
Is it possible to hit a button to “reveal” this current location in the sidebar? That would make it much easier as I could drag a file to the sidebar and straight into the relevant subfolder.
Or could the “Move To…” functionality be made to show the sub-groups of the current group? At the moment, it shows all the databases, collapsed, so I’d have to manually expand and navigate through. At the moment, if I do a “Move To” and type “Notes”, it’ll select a completely different folder called “Notes”. Ideally, it’d select the one closest to this location (e.g. a subfolder), in preference to one completely elsewhere in the folder structure.
Even better still… If I use “Move To…” from the inbox and type a client’s name, it will find just the root client folder. But if I could then type space and “Notes” it would be great if it would find a subfolder that matches. In other words, it would such paths rather than just the specific folder names in isolation. It would be nice that if I type “Smiths Notes” then it would fine Clients → Smiths → Notes
Failing that - is there “copy” and “paste” functionality for files (Windows-style!) or some other way?
I suppose the only other workaround is using two Windows, and drag files between them. To make this easy, it would be good to have a File → New Window → Here command.
