    thought i would start working with finder tabs (instead of using separate folders to move things around.

    like the idea, but...the only thing i find seriously wrong:

    if i drag a file to another tab and HOLD it there, the tab should open (in case i want to move that file to a subfolder in that tab).

    like it works between open windows...

    just a thought. good to see new finder features tho...

    EDIT: NEVERMIND, after i rebooted, this worked as it should!

    actually...would love to see finder BOOKMARKS down the line; i.e. ways to have, for example, a SET of windows to open (like in safari), and shortcuts to various folders..

    safari for finder...

    How do you get tabs to even work? I see the option open in tabs, I have the option in Finder selected to open in tabs and not a new window but every time I double click on a folder it opens in that window and no tab. I can't only get a tab to show by right clicking and selecting open in tab.

    open a window (make it big...).
    command-T, or the "+" sign on the right.
    point that tab somewhere...

    easy to move files between tabs, and (as i learned after a reboot), hold on the tab you're moving to, and it opens, and you can continue to direct a file to a specific folder.

    nice..

    The finder sidebar does kind of act like bookmarks since you can add folders to Favorites.

    What I don't like about the tab system is when you right click on a folder, it only gives you the new tab or new window option depending on your preference settings. The menu should give both choices, but command-double-click on a folder should follow the preferences.
