Re: [platform-ui-dev] RFC: Cut, Copy, Paste Proposal (end date = 12/03)

I agree it would be nice to have this as a preference rather than an action.

However, change location suggests something different from move.
When a project is created, one is able to specify its location. That is, the location of the root project folder. If the location already exists, then its contents become the initial contents of the project. Changing the location of a project suggest one is changing he root project folder, in other words, retargeting the project to some other root folder.

Move on the other hand actually moves the contents of a project to a new folder.

[SA: We should look into removing the Move operation all together from the
Project context menu also. This is an action that will be performed very
rarely, so why clutter the context menu? It would be better if this
operation was done from the Properties dialog. If we are leaving this Move
action, then maybe we could at least change its label to be more specific
what it will be doing e.g "Change Location"]
