Description Todd 2019-08-31 05:49:07 UTC

Request for Enhancement:

In calc, when dragging data with the mouse from one cell to another, please include "+" (ctrl key pressed) for copy and "-" (shift key pressed) for move on the dragged icon.

Many thanks,

Maybe it's enough to only show a plus symbol additional to the already showed symbol if ctrl + drag the cell data. This means to copy the data. All other cases means move the data which must not be indicated by an extra symbol. All the more as a minus implicates a deletion or subtraction which isn't the case here.

Adding needsUXEval.

So let's go for it. While + makes sense as Copy does add, I'm not happy with - for Move. How about a scissors? 

But I believe it's something we can talk about when a developer implements the request.
