Bug Description

It's just an idea, not really a bug.

It would be nice to have a context-menu when one right-clicks on a item within the dash. I can use the dash to find and open files but I would like to being able to "open the containing folder" or "copy-paste" or "cut-paste" the file from the dash.

The thing is that I can find my file but I want to move it into another folder. The dash doesn't help me here. Of course I can use Nautilus to do that but then I have to know where the file is myself.

I think that a simple context-menu could greatly enhance the possibilities of the dash.

What do you think?

Hi Fitoschido,

What do you need to know?

If you tell me instead of just flagging "incomplete" I could try to give you the information you need.

Magnetizer, the status incomplete + the addition of ayatana-design project to the report suggests that this report needs input from the design team.

I'd love to see this feature in unity. Personally I need "open with another app" from dash feature most.
