Description eskild 2008-08-21 15:01:06 UTC
My use case: I have some non-C/C++ files I need to look at occasionally (SNMP .mib files). So, I want to create a
logical folder called "MIBs" in my project and put the relevant files into it.

I can do this if I right-click on the "MIBs" folder and "Add existing item", which is fine.

But: I would have expected to be able to drag a file from the Favorites view into "MIBs", but I cannot.

I can drag from Favorites => Editor, but I cannot drag an open file from the Editor => "MIBs", either.

I wolud say it's a great idea to have ability drag'n'drop objects between tabs.
Many possibilities fro drag'n'drop here. Not only from Favorities to Projects
