Mark Nagata <email@example.com> commented on our recent SFDIaloger comparison (in TidBITS-093). He mentioned that some utilities, at least the CEToolbox/DiskTop combination and Suitcase II (for DA launching) remember the last folder used and put you in that folder no matter where the application or DA launched may reside. That's true, and it's an extremely helpful feature of these utilities. We didn't include them in the review, because the way they modify the SFDialog is completely transparent to the user (and because we hadn't thought of them). The only other comment we received came from Edward Reid, who mentioned that some of Super Boomerang's controls must be accessed from the Control Panel, whereas others are available in the SFDialog. That split can be a little confusing at times, and we forgot about it because once you set the Control Panel, you're unlikely to go back there all that often.
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
Move a File in the Finder
Sometimes you want to move a file in the Finder across volumes, not copy that file. Holding down the Command key while dragging ensures that the item is copied, and then its original deleted, adding up to a move.
