Ubuntu 12.10's Nautilus adds file drop into Bookmarks functionality
Ubuntu's default file manager, Nautilus, features plenty of actions when dealing with file and folders, like drag&drop files from the desktop into a Nautilus window, drag&drop files and folders from one Nautilus window to another, the regular copy&paste via the mouse cursor, etc, so, basically, users have both usual and quick ways of copying/moving items with Nautilus.
Nevertheless, where there are numerous users, there are numerous tastes and preferences, approach targeted by developers who are constantly refining Nautilus' functionalities (tags, undo support, etc).
Nautilus has just been updated to version 3.5.1 in Quantal Quetzal, adding the possibility to drop files directly into Bookmarks (under Nautilus side panel's Bookmarks label), meaning, in order to copy a file to, like for instance, Bookmarks' Ubuntu One folder, there is now support to click&hold&drag&drop a file directly into the Ubuntu One folder, which gain a ready-like orange highlight when the file is above it.
