Surprising missing IDEA feature

by Eric M. Burke

I love IntelliJ IDEA, but I'm baffled as to why I can't drag and drop items in the project tree. They already support the Move refactoring. It just seems natural to grab a node in the tree and drag it to its new location, thus triggering the refactoring.


The same is true of the Rename refactoring. Why can't I just click a node in the tree two times slowly (like in Windows) then overstrike to type a new name? (I know, I can hit Shift-F6, but my brain forgets all of the keystrokes).
