I thought we were getting "cut files" with Lion?

    This is quite annoying, and it's a feature I've been wanting in a Mac since I switched. Anyhow, I thought support for this was coming in Lion?

    Copy files as you would, then right click and hold option. Where it previously said paste, it will say Move item here.

    I don't see why I should have to reach for the option key to get a feature that should be on the screen in front of my face. When I first switched to Mac, I used Pathfinder until I got used to the "Mac way." After a while it fell into disuse and I lived within the limitations of Finder. Then when it was announced that "cut" was coming with Lion, I was dismayed that I had to remember a keyboard shortcut for it. Meanwhile I learned of a finder extension that doesn't require replacing finder with another program. It's a finder plugin called Totalfinder. For 18 bucks I have a Finder with tabs and cut is right there in front of my face for those times when I need it and I don't have to remember whether it was the option key or the command key.

    It's bad enough I have to hit fn delete for delete or fn downarrow for pagedown. I mean Steve Jobs has taken this button hate thing of his too darn far. Pretty soon we will have a 2 key keyboard where you have to hold option and hit "A" 26 times to type a "Z". Sheesh.

    Haha, lmao!

    Thank you. I had someone who doesn't like to post message me this. I didn't know about it but I still wish I could "Cmd-x", "Cmd-V"... lame.


    Anyhow, I thought it was coming? Or is what you are talking about the new feature? I don't know if it was in previous releases or not.

    here you go:

    COPY: command+C
    PASTE: option+command+V

    and in case you need to cut a group of files and put them in a new folder you want to open, select all those said files, and press: control+command+N

    hope it helps :cool:
