The Drag & Drop Cursor should show, if a file is being copied or moved or if only a shortcut is created. The '+' sign alone is not sufficient as it shows only, that something is added but not what and how.

Hi Reinhard,

On Windows if the item will be Linked, the standard Windows shortcut arrow shows on the icon before dropping. The plus icon shows that the file is being copied into your Brain (the default option). If no icon shows next to the cursor, then the file is being moved into your Brain.

Hi, Sean,
I know what the icons mean. But look how Windows Explorer handles this function (moving, copying, linking a file from one folder to another). There you have an icon PLUS a phrase explaining the action. Icon+Phrase makes these actions no-brainers whilest in TB9 you have to remember what the icons mean. One more piece that contributes to your cognitive load.

To put it another way: Self-explaining icons would make your work easier down the road, because you would never again have to explain, what the icons mean.
