Avoiding annoying failures when trying to move from DMG

Post by mef613 » Tue Aug 31, 2010 7:07 am

When installing new apps, I am constantly accidentally trying to move an app from a DMG (which is read-only) to some folder under Applications. This is particularly common since some apps are unpacked into directories by Safari, while others are in a DMG — easy to forget which is which.

Could Launchbar either:

1) Disable "move" for read-only files or those on read-only volumes? As a bonus, you could renumber the menu so #1 is now "copy."
2) If a "move" fails because the source files was read-only, copy instead and throw up a notification — don't just fail and make me find the target directory again.
