(Sometimes you add a document to the DR that you want to read when you have some time in the future, so you add it to a 'mustread'-view and can quickly find it later.

Moving files on the DR would indeed be a cool extension. The problem is that the current file-dialogs on the DR are a little cumbersome, so a dedicated DR folder/file selection widget would be nice to have to create the move-file feature.

I am also working on a hack that allows you change the title and author on the DR AND to block UDS from updating title and author each time you open a (pdf-)document that has embedded author and title properties.

All to follow somewhere in the future...

That would be the best way, of course, but to use it on a DR800 I'd have to port/translate all your other changes... That's something that I have in my TODO list, but not at top...

I tend to use shorcuts as MustRead (or favourite) view, so I was thinking on a simple external application, "INBOX Manager":

Code:
1. read <sd_card>/INBOX folder contents (files or directories)
2. create a treeview with 4 columns: 
    - chosen_destination? toggle or icon (not editable, false by default)
    - file/directory name (not editable)
    - create_shorcut? toggle or icon (editable)
    - destination path (null by default, hidden)
3. if user tap over a row a destination selection dialog is showed, which would fill 
    the 4th column with the selected path and mark the 1st one
4. before closing, loop over the files/dirs
    - if chosen_destination is marked:
      . move file/dir from INBOX to its destination path
      . if create_shortcut -> create shorcut
    . run mdbindex to reindex files. It would remove old entried from INBOX indeeed (so no need to play with the DB
I think I can code it in Lua in a few hours.

What do you think?
