Description Peter Hultqvist 2013-07-21 08:22:55 UTC
files within a project can no longer be moved.

 * Create a new project add some folders and files
 * Move a file to another folder by dragging
 * Select a file Ctrl+X, select another folder, Ctrl+V
 * Select a file Ctrl+C, select another folder, Ctrl+V

Expected result: files are being moved/copied.

Various results:
 A. No files are moved or copied.
 B. File is moved on disk but disappears from the project view.
Mostly A occurs but sometimes B.

When the action is performed the top status bar reports "Moving..."/"Copying..." followed by the message "Items saved".

Reopening the project changes nothing, same as before it was closed.

Solution is not under source control, though same results show if they are.

Tried with files open and closed, same effect.

No error messages

Today we have checked this issue with following build 

XS 4.2.3 (build 146)76e7c7f6ca0e59052f2bb29f8179313510977377

Now we are able to move file from one folder to another.
