As a user of Geany, I was surprised to find that when attempting to move
selected text by d'n'd, that the default behavior under WinXP was copy
Presumably you are talking about drag.and-drop inside one application
instance, as drag-and-drop of anything (including text) between apps
does not work in GTK+ on Windows?
I don't know what causes this behaviour, and presumably it is not
intended. File a bug at bugzilla.gnome.org against product:gtk+,
where I had expected it to be move as it is in Linux. When I brought this up on
the Geany list, I was told that this behavior is part of GTK.
The correct thing to compare to should be how non-GTK+ apps in general
behave on Windows, though, not how GTK+ behaves on X11. The intent is
that GTK+ should follow the platform's expected behaviour when
applicable. But anyway, in this case the platform defaults seems to be
move and not copy, too, when dragging inside one app.
