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

Overview

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.

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

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)

  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 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.

Doesn't do QuickAccess the same (at least for PPC)? http://free.abracode.com/cmworkshop/
