TotalFinder Cmd-X Issues w/ Desktop

issue

#1

Is anyone else having issues with cut/paste moving files to or from the Desktop?
The primary reason that I purchased TotalFinder was to have a viable Cntrl-X shortcut replacement that is taken as part of the fundamental end user operating paradigm in Windows.
Anyway, Cmd-X works perfectly fine, whenever neither the target or source is the Desktop, but when either resource involves ~/Desktop, I don’t get any productive output. Is this an intentional design feature? Is this a bug?

I guess what’s most important to ask, is whether anyone else is experiencing this issue.


#2

If I right-click Cut / Paste a file from TotalFinder to Desktop it doesn’t work. Also using Ctrl-X / Ctrl-V to the Desktop doesn’t work either. If I open up a tab to the Desktop and paste then it does work.

So yes, in answer to your question, I am having the same problem.

TotalFinder 1.8.2 + macOS Sierra

I’m still having this issue. I’m not sure if this is a bug or not in the way the Desktop is handled in Finder when it’s actually being accessed, it may not be able to pass a target location to TotalFinder to make the Cut/Paste happen.


#4

Note, this only occurs when ~/Desktop is the target. Cmd-X as Cut-Paste works perfectly fine when ~/Desktop is the source.

Thanks for bringing this up. I’m going to look into this tomorrow. Should be easy to fix.


#6

This was an issue under Sierra. Please test TotalFinder 1.9.5:

That’ll do. Looking forward to the full release. May your travels amidst the high coding seas be free from hydras.

A long-time TF user here, can’t live without it. Thank you all who worked to make the difficult SIP transition possible!

I’m experiencing a similar issue, not sure if it’s the same as the original post. TF 1.9.3 works fine in my MacBook Pro with macOS 10.12.5, but any version above that crashes when I move files to or from the Desktop. I then have to force quit TF and the moved files actually show up in the regular Finder window, and when I relaunch TF they are there as well. This happens every time I perform this action.

I have since uninstalled any beta version and I’m back to 1.9.3 which works just fine for me.

I did a search here, but couldn’t find matching results – am I the only one experiencing this issue?

I’m also having the same issue with using cut/paste to the desktop. Makes TotalFinder crash all the time. Funny thing is that it only happens on my wife’s MacBook Pro, but not mine.

Both MacBooks are running MacOS X Sierra, and TotalFinder 1.9.3.

Temporary solution, I told her to not use the cut/paste to the desktop for the time being.
