Instead of copy-paste I think you should consider doing copy the Rox-filer way (only copy, no paste).

It would be nice if there was a list of relevant shell commands, picking one of them could also display its syntax.

uggla: not sure I understand your two suggestions.  I've used Rox-Filer a bit, and just remember needing to drag an icon to do copying.  Is that what you mean?  The command-line in DirWin is there to support experienced people.  I don't think I'd want to burden it with a BASH cheat-sheet if that is what you are suggesting.  The drop-down menu already pre-loads the command line with a few really common examples.

The right click menu in Rox-filer has copy. It brings up a dialog where you can type the full filename of the copy (with path).

As for my other suggestion, I have attached a mockup screenshot that shows what I mean.

ROX does: Copy, Move, and Link on on a popup dialog when doing drag-n-drop.

What about a split directory view with the ability to transfer files from one side to the other (like Emelfm2), or would that make Dirwin too heavy?

uggla: open two copies of DirWin and drag files between them, or copy in one and select paste in the other.  It should work.  Or use Fluff.
