Hi there,
I use "Move Selection to New File" a lot for refactoring. But the location of the new file has to be the same folder than the current file. Why?

I can "Move Selection" to "dataadapter_aggregate.hpp", creating a new file in the same folder.

Why can't I "Move Selection" to "dataadapter\aggregate.hpp" instead, creating a new folder and moving the selection to a file there?

When I enter \ or /, the dialog says "Invalid characters in a file name".

Suggestion: Allow folders here as well and create the (sub) folders if they do not exist.

That would be a great help.

We are considering allowing you to set the directory at the same time:


The design we use with our refactoring commands is to try and keep them simple and focussed, so if you want to perform a more complex operation you can chain two or three commands together. This though is a case where you do want to do everything in one step.
