Description Zicguy 2014-02-06 08:56:25 UTC
Netbeans should have the ability to copy / paste files from Netbeans to local file system. This also could be done by using drag and drop. Actually, if I want to put some files on the windows desktop, I need to open an explorer windows which contains source files of my project, and copy files from there. In my opinion, it's a big waste of time.
For example, you can take Eclipse which has this feature.
This feature could be also apply to softwares. For example, if I need to put some files online via FTP, Netbeans should allow to drag files to Filezilla window.
Thanks by advance.

I reported this issue last year. Why it is not take in account?
It's really a little feature but it will be really useful not to waste time.
I don't understand why is it so hard to implement that whereas others softs (i.e. Eclipse) can do this...
Thanks by advance to answer me.
