Description ssazonov 2014-02-07 10:43:11 UTC
I'm not much familiar with Mac OS, but on Windows OS you can coppy class from one package to another by holding Ctrl key and moveing it by mouse from one package to another. I expected this feature also works on Mac OS with difference that I need to hold ⌘ instead Ctrl (since shortcut for copping on Mac is ⌘C).

>> That doesn't work on Mac OS

Seems like if you drag first and press Ctrl afterwards then the copy dialog pops up. Pressing Ctrl before dragging results in context menu.

⌥ is used in finder to copy a file. Reassigning to platform explorer. Please evaluate or reassign if this is not the right component.
