== History ==
The implementation is almost identical to the one done by Martin; details available at :
The only differences are ::
* More copy-to options :: Clipboard, Documents (in addition to mounted drives).
* When entries are copied to another location, both - the sources and the destinations - are de-selected automatically, without the user explicitly have to de-select them all manually.
* There has been a progress bar added for batch-operations.
== Basic utility of this feature ==
* This feature, merely does a loop-over for multiple entries. That is, the workflow and the end-result in the following two scenarios should be exactly the same ::
** Entries, E1, E2, E3 .... En, are operated upon one after the another, individually.
** Entries, E1, E2, E3 .... En, are selected together, and operated upon one after the another, as a single macro batch-operaton.
* Some particular use-cases ::
** Batch-operations <del>speeds up</del> makes XO-bundle installations more convenient, when multiple bundles are copied together from a USB drive to the journal. Thanks a ton to Sridhar Dhanapalan for the attention generated towards this (otherwise obscure) use-case.
== Typical copy-to workflow ==
