Digital photo professional 4

I recently upgraded from an older version. Version 4 doesn't allow me to cut and paste or to copy to a sub folder. I take sports photos and file them by date taken. I then make sub folders and label them by team/quality of photo and cut and paste to the sub folder. That way all my sub folder info is still filed under the date folder. This was never a problem before. Any advice? Does anyone know if 4.5 allows this? I called tech support and all they could tell me was "I can't do it from my computer either" "don't know why it changed".

I never knew that DPP allowed you manage, copy, and paste files.  Isn't this what that "Image Browser" software supposed to do for you?

If I select a photo and right click I get a menu that allows me to cut and paste. I don't normally do it, but I verified that I could for this response. Windows 7, DPP 4.5.20.

I've used successive versions of DPP for almost ten years, and that has always worked for me. 4.5.10 has a problem with drag and drop, but cut and paste have always worked properly.

 

I've always assumed that Image Browser was merely a successor to Zoombrowser, i.e. a dumbed-down editor for P&S users who don't want to bother learning a serious editor.

I can cut and paste, but it won't allow me to cut and paste to a subfolder of the original folder.

Cut and paste works fine in 4.5.20 to cut from parent folder and paste to sub-folder. W7 computer.

 

Drag and drop also works. with 4.5.20.
