Drag & Drop Between IntelliJ IDEA and Explorer/Finder
One of the features that has been voted most in our JIRA is the possibility to drag & drop files between IntelliJ IDEA and native file managers — Explorer on Windows and Finder on Mac. In previous IntelliJ IDEA versions, some of this functionality was provided by plugins like Native Neighborhood. In Maia, this is finally supported natively, letting you:
- Drag a file from Explorer/Finder and drop it on editor to open it in a new tab
- Drag a file from Explorer/Finder and drop it on a folder in Project view to copy or move it to that folder
- Drag a file from the Project view and drop it on a folder in Explorer/Finder to copy or move it to that folder.
Hold the Ctrl key (⌘ on Mac) while dragging to copy a file, or move it otherwise.
Feel free to leave comments and post JIRA issues to share your ideas on other possible use cases for this feature.
