In Eaglefiler I’ve always missed the ‘drop stack’ in pathfinder - i.e. an area you can drop files you are planning to copy elsewhere. You can then move around in the file structure, and then copy the files from the drop stack into the folder you’ve just uncovered. It’s a glorified cut and paste. The rather unfriendly position of the ‘unfiled’ folder, down the bottom, aggravated this minor quibble. Sure you can open up multiple windows etc but its fiddly.
The solution just dawned on me, and it’s painfully obvious. Create a top level folder called AAAdropzone. Now I can copy files into it from ‘unfiled’, and then navigate to the folder I want and the files are easily to hand.
I might even make numbered subfolders for the dropzone - to simulate pathfinders multiple dropzones.
