XShelf is an application that enhances Drag and Drop operations in Mac OS X by providing a shelf where Drag and Dropped items (such as files, text, or URLs) can be stored for later use. Thus, not only can Drag and Drop operations be "paused", multiple operations can be in flight at once.
What's New
Version 1.1.4:
  • Updated for OS X 10.5 Leopard. Due to lack of time or resources, this version is only tested on 10.4 and later.
  • Fitt's revenge. Items can be dropped without backing away from the edge of the screen (though the highlight doesn't appear).
  • Fixed a bug where, if you had the context menu open, clicking away would leave the drawer open.
Requirements
Intel/PPC, OS X 10.4 or later

DL link and dev sites are down.
I've found this http://rixstep.com/4/0/xshelf/ but I think it's another program.

But hey, I've found a few places that still have version 1.1.4!!! :-)

On Mountain lion its still nearly as useful as the competition & less intrusive.

I just recently bought a similar app in Yoink, but its pluses are also its annoying proclivities & I could just as well have stayed with xshelf or explored the alternatives more closely.

None of these type of apps seem (to me) as though they'd be something you'd run all the time unless you were on an 11" laptop or have a need for moving a lot of files around during a special project.

There are other ways to get there unless both source & destination vary among many folders.

Thanks, Aargl! Because of this thread, I checked the download and found that it *wasn't* 1.1.4, but 1.1--and a SIT archive at that! Yech!

Anyway, I've followed your advice (and maybe your links ;-) ), and have uploaded XShelf 1.1.4 to the server. Now you can find it without having to go a-wandering.

No updates needed in four years! Still working great in Lion.
Very helpful little application.
It's what finder lacks - Pathfinder has it.

It works on 10.6.4 in terms of functionality, but transparency/design/color cannot be changed and adapted to a Snow Leopard style GUI. But it's a nice little app. I already used it on Tiger.

IS THIS APPLICATION A JOKE?

I really can't understand how it can be useful.

That's not a useful reply. The answer is, this is another means by which to move file around. Consider what one can currently do: (1) open a second window, move it around on screen, navigate to the new location, go the other window, drag the file to the new window, and then close the new window. (2) Navigate to the new location, drag it to the sidebar, then navigate back to the old location, drag it to the sidebar location, and then remove the new location from the sidebar.

With X Shelf, you don't have to move anything right away. You can store files to be moved later, or you can also drag a bunch of files from different locations and, once done, move them all to one new location (if you wish). It's just an alternative method, but it works quite well. PathFinder has this built into it, and no one that I know of has ever complained about it.

Wow! Didn't see that one coming. Nice that you made it universal.

Well I hope it'll be compatible with Tiger.

Its a shame that this app has seemingly been abandoned by its developer(s) as it held great potential, but was never quite what i wanted it to be. I was always looking for a way to CUT and PASTE files and folders in the finder using the contextual menu (a la Windows) and this came closest to that, but because that function wasn't accessible without a drag n drop i never got into using it full time. I have been checking on XShelf since it was released, but it appears to have reached the end of its development. Shame.

What a great idea. However I wish they would take it a step further and allow the file to be actually transfered to the shelf instead of just an icon. It would be nice to be able to visually inclutter my desktop but still have easy access to desktop items via the shelf. If they can do that, I'd also like it if items on the shelf, while on the shelf, would show up in finder searches as being on the desktop, even though they aren't.......

Handy little tool. I wonder why *I* never thought of writing one like this. Great idea -this should be built into the OS (or at least come with it). And it's free. I like free stuff. ;-)

You should contact the developer via the developer's website.

Spoke with (well, via email) developer. The problem was a plugin called SIMBL which is used by A-Dock to make (for example) the email icon dynamic.
