I am dragging, or pasting folders and files manually on my Mac.
My default setting for new content is Local, and I don't want to change that, but I don't think it's too much to ask to be able to drag a local file into a cloud folder and not have the folder become mixed content. It should at least be an option to respect the setting of the parent folder. I work with a lot of files and it's a chore to constantly have to update the folder to cloud-only any time I add a file.
The sync time is not the issue. The files are small and sync quickly.
Ah, thanks for the clarifications Rob - much appreciated!
As what you mention is actually normal and expected since those files need to sync to our servers first so you can then make them available 'Online only' (by right clicking on them and selecting the appropriate option), I'll take your comments as feedback and I'll make sure to pass them on to our dev team for their consideration - thank you for your input on this one!
If there's anything else I can assist with in the meantime, please do let me know; I'll be more than happy to follow up.
