Default Cursor displays plus sign (+) when moving FX in mixer (FIXED)

OS X 10.11.3
Reaper 5.15

Step to reproduce:
  1. Alt-drag an effect plugin in the mixer.
Result: The plus sign (+) stays next to the mouse cursor, making it seem as if the effect will be copied.

Expected behavior: Plus-sign (+) disappears, indicating Reaper is moving, not copying, the plugin.

Confirmed. Maybe more a feature request tho (as the fx still is getting copied to the new track) ...


FIXED (5.20pre10)

No, the fx is getting moved to the track, which is computer terms is a completely different operation. The plus sign means you're adding an instance, which does not happen in a move operation.

It does "add" the FX to the new track (and removes from the other). So the "+" sign isn't really a bug.


Feature Request or Nitpick to me.

"Add and remove" is not the same as "add" – it's "move".

If you're on Mac – I think Windows and Linux too – the plus sign GOES AWAY when you MOVE a file (NOT copy) in Finder/Explorer. This is essential user feedback in standard OSes.

I got it. But it's "just" a display thing. Nothing major not working

I agree. But it did trip me up when I saw the + until I actually tried dragging and dropping.

I see you've changed the plus to an arrow in 5.16. Since this is the nitpick forum:

That tiny arrow looks almost the same as the plus. Please consider just removing the plus/arrow entirely for Move FX, at least in OS X. It's foreign to the OS – just look at finder and you'll see the + for copying just goes away on the move cursor.
