One of the features I am sincerely missing is the ability to duplicate files to another directory, and duplicate entire folders.
Ideally, I wiould like to say a simple duplicate function that allows you to specify what directory you wish to duplicate to. I know we can open up terminal and do it with little problems - but it is a very common task, and a shell menu shortcut would be a huge timesaver.
Overall, Love CD!

This is a pretty common task for me - as when i develop a website it is usually in sub directories, or in another user account. Being able to duplicate an entire folder to another location would be sweet. Of course I can continue to use shell, I just thought it would be a nice time saving feature.
Perhaps instead of a feature request for a single function, the ability to define our own custom commands would be more appropriate - then users can customize their CD to better suit their use cases.
I guess it boils down to preference - I don't keep all of the folders expanded all of the time - because its dirty and a pain to navigate, and I don't feel like I should have to prepare my client before i undergo an action - by which I mean - expanding all of the directories and then dragging to the directory I want to send it to - I would much rather just click a folder and tell it to do what i want it to do without having to worry about the time it takes to expand all of the directories and then carefully drag the folder across, I would much rather have a simple cp function that allows me to define the destination path.
I understand that the os supports a native method for copying a folder from one directory to another - I was simply hoping that a more user friendly approach was feasible.
I still think custom commands would be a cool addition, shortcuts for common actions, macros - whatever you want to call them. A simple interface that allows us to define our own common actions that we want to perform that takes advantage of our unique server environments.
If I login as root - i think it would be very cool to be able to setup a little command to restart my media server or even apache from within CD. Likewise, if I am logged in as a client with shell access - I think it would be awesome to be able to execute commands like zip, cp, move, etc right from the shell menu.
I have no issues with continuing to use shell to do any of this, just though a streamline would be awesome.
