    In Finder Cut on the edit menu seems to be disabled and I have no idea why. It has been like this for a few weeks and it is really bugging me.
    Anybody have an idea why or how I can fix it?

    Thanks.

    Are you aware that it's for cutting text, not files? To move a file, drag it to its destination.

    ^^on that note...while you can't cut files in the finder, you can still copy/paste them. it isn't the same, i know, but it does come in handy.

    That's odd. I swear I had cut files before. I just find it much easier to command+X on a file, going to the destination then pasting. I don't really like dragging files through folders. I mean, what if you are say 20 folders into something and you want to drag a file into the previous folder? If you drag you have to go all the way through those folders again.

    Ah well. Maybe cutting files will be a feature with an update someday...
