Option-click-ftw

TL;DR:

Rather than a plan click and drag, if you hold option, it will create a copy of the file rather than move the original.


I didn’t know i needed it!

Use-cases:

  • Copying a folder with a project or application to start a new one based on the old
  • Creating a sharable album of photos without deconstructing the original
  • Simple version control: option + drag and drop to create a quick copy anywhere

Don’t forget you can click and drag across Hot Corners, while using Gestures, or while fast-app-switching
