What'm I doing wrong?
The mistake is mine. This is a Directory Opus feature. I'm in Dopus so often I forget I'm using it.

And now I guess I should mention that I also like the fact that it can create multiple folders at once. Just open the new folder option and type or paste all the folder names into the window.

Interesting!


Exactly how did you paste it into a folder? Via Explorer with the folder highlighted?

This is a Directory Opus feature. The method is standard paste methods (menu and keystrokes).

I explained it incorrectly before, and in the wrong thread, and in the wrong way, and attributing it to the wrong software.

I might as well add another advantage here. Directory Opus has an "undo" feature. You can undo the last action, or you can us an "undo" list to see previous actions. I use this feature a lot. Sometimes I'm working quickly and and notice that something is not right. So I check the "undo" list and can see exactly what I did, and then undo it. For example, I once dragged a bunch of files into another folder and then realized the move was mistake. I needed those files moved back, but they were dozens in a folder of hundreds, and no way to be sure which ones they were. So I just undid the move and they were all back in place.
