#1524 closed enhancement (fixed)

Journal transfer-to-card option on context menu

Reported by: yamaplos Owned by: alsroot
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: journal Version: Unspecified
Severity: Major Keywords: Journal
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


When you right-click on an item in Journal, currently appearing options are Resume, Copy, and Erase.

It would be very convenient and practical to have also the options of Copy To Card, Copy To Flash, and even better, Move To Card and Move To Flash, where the file not only gets copied but the memory in the local system is freed of it.

This feature would be very valuable for the XO or installed Sugar, probably less so for SoaS.

The current drag-and-drop is inconvenient, requires more work, and a total pain unless the trackpad is perfectly operation

Both the memory getting clogged and trackpad inconvenience are mahor issues for XO users

Of course it would make sense that these options be either hidden, or better, grayed out, if no SD or stick is connected to the system.

My worry is that this palette is already getting too complicated for our target ages, adding even more palette items for (what seems to me) to be a rarely needed feature seems a poor choice. Can you describe your common use case? Is it possible that what you really want is multi-selection of Journal entries so you can then drag and drop them all at once?
