Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#9726 new enhancement

Drag & drop of file includes previously selected file

Reported by: moghilemear Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: interface Version: 5.1.3
Severity: normal Keywords: Drag & Drop, bad select operation
Cc: Architecture: Intel


Cyberduck: 5.3 OSX: 10.12

Previously selected folder is moved and downloaded (without using shift key). This is not standard drag & drop behavior.

  1. open a directory tree on a remote server
  2. select a folder (directory)
  3. while that folder is highlighted, select and drag a file (*do not* shift-select or ctrl-select)
  4. both the previously selected folder and the file are moved/downloaded (depending on the drop target)


  1. Standard drag & drop behavior is to move only the newly-selected file (not the previously selected folder). OSX-Finder, for example, will only drag the previously selected folder if the user performes a shift-select.
  2. Functionally, what should be happening is: the previously selected folder should be automatically de-selected, and then the target file should be moved/downloaded. It appears that the "de-select" step is not being executed properly.
