When you have several files in a group selected and then drag one, that file and all selected files will be dragged to wherever you’re moving them to. It also works that way if you hold down the “option” key to duplicate those files to another location. Standard stuff, works great.
However, when you hold down “command” and “option” when you click to drag the files to replicate them to another location, the behavior is different.
If you try to replicate-drag several selected files, only the file that was clicked on will be dragged. The other files are left in place.
If you have several files selected and then try to replicate-drag an unhighlighted file, that file and all selected files will be dragged.
Could the behavior of selecting and dragging several files when command-option is held down be made to match the way files with no modifiers or just option depressed are dragged?
I can work around the issue by waiting until after I’ve started the drag to press command-option, but I’d rather be able to hold down the modifier keys when I start the drag.
