Moving files and folders with comments intact

Moving files and folders with comments intact

It would be a great feature if you could move folders and files with the web baseed comments intact. Not sure how you ever make this possible.

@GMarshall - I may be misinterpreting the question, but today when you rename a file, move it, or move the folder it belongs to, the comments associated with the file are maintained.

Could you give more details on the scenario where you say the comments aren't kept?

Hi there.

I am realising if you physically move a folder between directories the comments will stay intact which is great, also if you CUT and PASTE the folder into another directory then the file comments stay with the files. However if you COPY and PASTE the files comments do not follow since these are new files altogether. I was assuming this result would happen every time you attempted to move folders, so I am very glad this is not the case.

Thanks

Greg

Yes, you are correct.  When items are copied we do not copy the comments, but do when items are moved.
