Hi Patrick,

thanks for your feedback!

I think that could be implemented as well:
* we could add a "toolbar" on top of the tree containing a button to  
switch between copy or move mode (this toolbar could also contain the  
filter input)
* or we could  do it as it is now, showing a popup menu after  
dropping the page
(while I'm not sure what the better option would be)

could go in the mentioned toolbar as well or get a button at the  
bottom like it is now

they're in the top menu to the left of the logout button, just not  
with the icons right now (prototype ;-)

I though about putting them in the right sidebar like the clipboard.  
AFAIR Lasse and Jens also had skins/screens where they put stuff like  
that on the right.

Just forgot to put them in the top menu, probably under Edit, View or

This should all happen in the center area as it is right now. In case  
you're talking about the Tools->Extensions Menu, this is meant to be  
place where Extensions can hook in their-self with little "BE  
application" modules (the category manager from tt_news 2.5 f.e.  
which is under web->functions or web->info currently)

There shall be no frames anymore - that's at least my hope. Right now  
the layout was made using extJS but I can imagine building it  
hardcoded in HTML+CSS as it basically doesn't change to improve

sure ;-)

all the best
