  • Feature Request: Drag-n-Drop from beyond compare

    It be awfully handy to be able to drag-n-drop files from Beyond Compare..
    I'd like to be able to drag-n-drop selected files from BC3 to another application.
    I'm aware of the right-click/Explorer context menu... but a "send-to" or "open with" wont work in my case...

    BC3 does the job of finding the files I need to work with... I must then select those files in Explorer..

    And of course Window-explorer like copying/moving via drag-n-drop would bee handy as well..

    Thanks for the suggestion. This is on our Customer Wishlist.

    We also have the Copy To Folder or Move to Folder commands for copying a selection to a specific selection without the need of Windows Explorer's context menu.

      Team Scooter: In the mean time, an easily implemented work-around would be to add a "Locate in Explorer" context menu item to make it easier for a user to locate a found file or folder in Windows explorer.

        Michael,

        Does an Open With call to:
        explorer /select,"%f"

        meet your needs?

        Here is a link to the original Open With kb article for more detailed instructions.

        Instead of Associated App, make it Open With Explorer. Allow it to work on files or folders.
