#246 Dragging a card from collection to virtual deck should work.


Right now when I drag a card from my collection to a virtual deck, I get an error dialog box that says: "Cannot perform this operation: Cannot move own cards to virtual collection. Use copy instead.".
It would be nice if instead of getting this dialog box, the application would interpret a drag of an owned card to a virtual deck as a copy operation instead of a move. (i.e. this would work as intended, the owned card count in my collection would stay the same, but the virtual card would also be added to the virtual deck).

    The problem is then people would get confused why sometimes cares are copied and sometimes moved. What I can do instead is to add a button "Copy" into the dialog - and you press it it will copy. I also can I add checkbox "Do not prompt again"...

    the reason i always use virtual deck is because when the first time i installed Magic Assistant, i created a deck, dragged cards to it, and decided to delete the deck, just to realize that those cards were deleted from the collection.
    but it is really annoying you can't drag-and-drop cards to a virtual deck by default.

    also another problem is when you try to add cards to a virtual deck's sideboard (at least last time when i used it) was that i could not directly drag/move from the deck itself, but had to move it from the collection and i think if i recall correctly, it affected ownership.
    it was like the deck was virtual but the sideboard is not

    Why you cannot drag from collection to sideboard?
    Just arrange views side by side and you can drag (assuming sideboard and deck both have same ownership)

    tried just now:
    -create virtual deck
    -drag cards from collection
    -error message pops saying "use copy instead"

    found another bug:
    -open sideboard for virtual deck
    -drag cards from magic database (NOT collection) to sideboard
    -it will increase the own count in the collection
    -deleting the card will not decrease the own count, only restarting the the game
