    Yes, I know you do. That is why it would be nice if more priority were given to letting the side of the right-click initialize the direction of a file copy... for those of us who do not prefer the BC3 implementation of Ctrl+A. It forces me to do extra keypresses for every file copy, keypresses that would be unnecessary with the implementation of the enhancement request in this thread.

    By the way, a wishlist item I would have is for a Tweak to change the Ctrl+A functionality.

    I don't have a problem with this trick. Once you have made a selection, use of the arrow keys can be very handy and is perferctly logical. But here are two other suggestions that I would find just a little easier (more direct) at times. They are compatible with each other as well as with current behavior:

    Suggestion 1:
    Select anything on left side. Then <Shift> <Select All> selects everything visible on the left side.
    Select anything on right side. Then <Shift> <Select All> selects everything visible on the right side.

    Suggestion 2:
    <Control><Select All> selects everything visible on left, no matter what the current selection.
    <Alt><Select All> selects everything visible on right, no matter what the current selection.

    Analagous behavior for <Select All Files>.
    A consistent set of keyboard shortcuts would require some thought.
