Pointless Feature Request - Zoned areas for drag and drop

Hi Toni,

Pointless feature request. When having floppy drives enabled is it possible to have zones for drag and drop. For example dropping into the top left of the window loads the disk into DF0:, top right DF1: bottom left DF2: and bottom right DF3:

Naturally if there is only DF0 enabled then the whole window is used, if DF0 and DF1 are enabled the window is split vertically and so on..


Pointless, but useful

Your dreams have been fulfilled!

WinUAE have this feature, you only need to enable the status bar (the standard windowed style at misc tab) and drop an ADF over the drive LED which you want to insert the disk. It is not the same thing but it works a dream!

I know all about that feature, however it is very small and I often drop it straight onto the window without realising and it is auto loaded into df0:

I would like the feature I have explained!!

Lol, i guess i'm not the only one who is thinking about something like this.

But my idea was more like an extra floating window (dual monitor setup here).

Like: Fullscreen/window on the one monitor and a small drag'n'dropable window on the other monitor.

Edit: How about DF0-DF4 icons in the traybar ? But when i look on the traybar here, better not

Oh, sorry for confusing the readers of your thread! I am sure Toni will respond to your request in some way or another. If not, you can be sure that I will pester him until you get what you want!

I've put our last two posts so readers know what we're talking about.

LOL.

Part of the reason I say zones is because if you're dropping N adf you're probably going to use the adf straight away, and having it as a dock means I have to move the mouse to the winuae window lol

Yes lazy

Yes but I am more busy than usual..

Problem with this feature is that at least I just drag and drop files to random positions and I don't want them to suddenly mount in different drive. I guess very small zones would work. Maybe.

...and if you do decide to go ahead with this; then maybe a tickbox under "Miscellaneous" that needs to be checked if you want them on (as personally I'd never use this and wouldn't want it switched on by default).

Done. Corners are now floppy drive drop'n'drop zones, any other part of window works like previously.
