MoveCM for Mac1.2.3

17 March 2011

Contextual menu to move/archive files/folders to common folders.

What is MoveCM for Mac

MoveCM is a menu bar application, service and contextual menu item for moving, copying, aliasing, hard linking and archiving (zip compressing) files and folders quickly into common folders. i.e. without the need to drag and drop them, use aliases, etc. It is a generalization of the Finder's "Move to Trash" contextual menu item, you can apply it to any folder you like. Use the System Preference pane to specify destination folders. The menu bar application or contextual menu will then consist of menu items that correspond to these destinations. Control click on one or more files and/or folders in the Finder, select a destination from the menu, and the files and/or folders will be moved (copied, archived) to that destination. You have the option, specified in the preference pane, to have the destination folder opened for you after the operation completes. You also have the option of having the menu items in the contextual menu named after the destination folder, or by its pathname.

Note: MoveCM exists as several alternative forms. The reason is that Mac OS X 10.6 changed the way contextual menus should be implemented, namely as services. Since the "old style" CM's no longer work in 10.6, MoveMBI and MoveService have been created.

What's new in MoveCM

Version 1.2.3:
  • MoveMBI: Fixed a user discovered problem with the menu items "Add Folder" and "Remove Folder" - the preferences window folder list was not updated when these menu items were selected, resulting in them having no effect.
  • MoveMBI: Removed the option "Make as submenu" from the Settings pane of preferences since it is not applicable to the menu bar app, only the contextual menu.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

The provided link only dumps you at the Limit Point website, where you will NOT find MoveCM. Limit Point has, ahem, limited what they offer these days and essentially scoured out their website to a dead minimum. Therefore, HUH?

MoveMBI works like a charm, under Mac OS X 10.6. I use it more than 10 times each day. My only grief is that sometimes, MoveMBI "looses" its destination folders… not all folders, not always the same, but they are gone from the Menu. It's not a big work to put them back again, but maybe this could be changed in a future version… Thanks for the good work, keep goin'

I downloaded the application this morming to demo it. After a couple of hours of using it I decided that this was exactly what I was looking for; especially the MOVE TO functionality. I made my donation and received my password within minutes. I'm on an iMac and using OS X (10.6.4)

If you want to have a move feature inline in your contextual menu of finder all you need to do is open up automator and create a simple move service item name it what you want, go to the services tab under the keyboard preference pane and even give it a hotkey. QuickCopy is a great application that allows you to move/copy files quickly with a hotkey and have the nice feature of choosing between copy or move by pressing the option key to change. If you have "copy" as your default setting in QC holding the option key once the app is invoked will change it to "move." A very nice feature to move/copy apps all over your hard drive and can even add spotlight comments without ever taking your hand off the keyboard. I prefer something like this as I do not like to populate my services menu or menubar... actually why I also like the amazing app folderglance. There is no app that changes your contextual view and options inline in finder/desktop like FolderGlance. If you really want a contextual menu to move, copy, create files, create folders, and even alias items to other places you MUST check out "FolderGlance." The app is simply amazing. Also, has the great features of adding custom locations and no more having to "show package contents" anymore if you choose the option. now when you right-click an app or package you can scroll right through it... no windows popping up... everything is inline. Oh yeah FolderGlance even has preview of any file you hover your mouse over when FolderGlance is invoked. When it comes to moving/copying/aliasing/creating items and folders and previewing files just by hovering FolderGlance is the best and only choice if you like to work through your contextual menu in finder. If a hotkey will work QuickCopy is great with many nice features and a recent folder list along with favorite folders like folderglance offers and finderpop offers but with the option to change between move and copy just by holding the option key down is very convenient. Other than that, if you want inline and can work with automator (quite easy) then you can skip all these options and just use your service creation option and the service will appear as a "contextual menu" in finder... at the bottom. Contextual menu's are not dead, but they are used in a different way, a bit harder to create but many dev's have done so... like folderglance and finderpop. The under used but very useful services menu replaced cm menu's somewhat, which is great imo as they are more useful, easier to create, and now quickly accessible via command click/right-click. Main benefit... services are "context" aware... i.e. if your working with text and right click a highlighted paragraph for instance services dealing with photos do not appear... only those that work with text will appear. Anyways it comes down to three apps. FolderGlance, FinderPop, QuickCopy (as this is posted in MoveCM, so I assume your just moving files) and apple's own Automator. You can have contextual menu's again, actually more flexible but if you just want that plain one trick CM go with automator. If you want to be able to do everything through your CM menu in finder check out FolderGlance, it is amazing. FinderPop is also nice, but I prefer FG, try them both though, FP is free but does not have the kind of tweaking options FG has. That's it.

  Do NOT download this... until you have tried the marvellous QuickAccessCM from http://free.abracode.com/cmworkshop/quick_access.html which does a heck of a lot more than just move things, is beautiful to use, and is free! BTW, be aware that Snow Leopard has no Contextual Menus. Andreas

I'm sorry, what does MoveCM do that a simple service can't? Automator provides all of this and more. For free. Try it. It's quite simple. Don Montalvo, TX

I made a "one time" donation to Move CM about 2 years ago with Kagi, got a password and am now getting a message that it requires a password. Kagi doesn't answer emails sent to confirm I purchased the software. Bummer. Don't know what to do but pay again to get this very good piece of software.

This is exactly the kind of thing I needed. Works well. Also, you should check the web site for the marketing. Make a one-time donation, and you get a password good for all this utilities. That's definitely WAY COOL. Hope he gets way rich.

Finderpop still does this better than anything else, no menu, no "common" folder, sinply select, click, choose folder all in one fluid motion and click...your choice of move copy or alias appears on the screen. None compare to Finderpop's ease of use and simple elegance. And it's FREE.

Didn't really think there was anything to make this better. I was wrong. The Put in Place feature is a very useful addition. Great work!

Excellent productivity enhancer. Running a 24/7 File Server means that I shuffle about a LOT of files. I combine this with "One Finger Click" and "Lazy Mouse" This troika means that with one finger and one click I am moving folders / files with ease. Newest added feature is a very fine addition to the feature set.

This application keeps getting better and better. The author is very responsive and replies immediately and the options available just go to make working that much easier. Pity Apple didn't include this functionality with the OS. Yes, you can do the same sort of thing with Automator but not as cleanly and not as fast. Highly recommended.

Just installed on 10.0.1 and it works exactly as it says. As this does exactly what I've been looking for, I have high hopes for it.
