File | Move into project RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the purpose of the menu command under the File menu to move current object to another project. For example; I have a class file open in the editor and I open the file menu. Near the bottom is an option to Move the class file to another project. It does not appear to perform a move of the file. It appear to create a link to the file.

    Why call it Move if it is not doing a move?
