Not seeing how to move left to right

Postby wimehada » Tue Apr 09, 2019 1:25 pm

I'm comparing some old backups and some folders and files are redundant so I want to move over (overwrite if necessary) folders and files on the left side that don't exist or are different on the right side...

However, when I right-click a folder on the left (even if it says it doesn't exist on the right) and click Move, the menu expands to Left to... or Right to... and then clicking one of those pops up a Browse For Folder box with Computer selected... https://imgur.com/m0lbcXj

I'm not understanding why WinMerge wants me to choose a folder to move to, with no clue as the path I just added to compare to on the previous window... now I have to go back to Explorer, pull up both folders side-by-side, and manually move over each one (which Explorer just naturally asks me to merge). The whole point of WinMerge is to save me some work while making it easy to see differences, but I'm not understanding why it can't do a basic move like Windows' built-in Explorer can.

Yay thankfully my post is now approved, however I'm not seeing any reply to it.
