    Hello;

    How do you copy and paste on Yosemite? on Mavericks the key command was

    cmd + C to copy then alt+cmd+V to paste (Move)

    I can't get this to work on Yosemite...

    Ideas?

    Thank You

    It's the same though it won't allow me to move files to the Desktop location

    no issues with other folders or doing drag n drop.

    On my case, clean install of DP5 wont allow me to move the file using:

    cmd+c and then pasting or moving to desire location with opt+cmd+v

    Works fine on Mavericks, ML, L etc...

    Not working for me as well

    I'm just trying to move some images around. When it use the opt+cmd+v the Edit word blinks at the top but nothing actually moves. Really annoying so I hope we see a fix soon.

    To the OP...
    your commands of
    "cmd + C to copy then alt+cmd+V to paste (Move)"
    work as expected on my new clean Yosemite install.
    I can even move files and folders from Finder to my Desktop.

    Moving files with alt+cmd+V is not working for me either. Really annoying.

    It started working for me after resetting PRAM and SMC, but I restarted after a few days (because Yosemite was slowing to a crawl -- also new since updating) and it's broken again. This is ********.

    Same problem here. I haven't figured out the pattern but it works only in some occasions.

    Weird, works totally fine for me. Will "right click + option" then "move item here" work for him/her?

    It works intermittently here too. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

    For example, I'm able to move items TO desktop FROM my external drive, but not FROM desktop TO ext drive. Permissions do nothing.

    Ha! XtraFinder was the culprit on my machine. Uninstalled that and everything works as it should.
