Question UNDO or similar for Thuna 1.4.0? Accidental file moving

I use Thunar 1.4.0 under Xubuntu 12.10.

When dragging files in Thunar (or from Thunar across the Xfce environment into other applications) it sometimes just happens that I accidentally release the mousebutton.

This means that instead of f.e. moving a text file from Thunar into Geany, what I actually did is dropping the text file somewhere in the folder hierarchy. It's sometimes *very hard* to reconstruct where the file went.

To cut a long story short: is there anything like UNDO in Thunar???

That would be great. Thanks.

No, unfortunately there is no undo feature for Thunar as far as I can tell, not even via plugins.


file manager, thunar, xfce
