I use winmerge v2.10.2.0 to compare 2 directories (viewed with left & right panes). The left are the original files and on the right is my archive. If I want to move files from the left to right, the procedure is to select the files, right-click to choose "move to", and then to select the root directory defined by the right pane. I am then prompted with a dialog (see attached) that should show what I want to do, except that it is entirely inaccurate, sometime indicating wrong directories, and sometimes indicating that I want to move right-to-left. The actual move proves to be accurate and exactly what I wanted, but the intermediate dialog is always not accurate and disconcerting.

Lastly, by way of including a suggestion, why can't I simply move from left-to-right (that is, the destination would be assumed to be the right pane, similar to the way copy works)??

Thank you for a wonderful piece of software!

    I have replicated this issue, and am investigating it. Flag check at DirActions.cpp(928) fails. looking for where the item.UIOrigin flag gets written.
