Dolphin file manager is showing a list of options when dragging & dropping a file (copy/move/create link).

Can the same options be made available in other file managers?

Tested in version 1.3.1.


While dragging the file, right-click and the menu should appear. (It appears even within the same location, but that is buggy.)

Tested with v. 0.14.1.
