Drop Stack

I seem to recall that when I dragged something to the Drop Stack and moved it somewhere else, it would be removed from its original location. I would use "option" to do a copy instead of a move. But, now, in this latest version of PF, it appears that just dragging doesn't move it anymore. It copies it. How do I move instead of copy?
Thanks.

    If you're dragging to a different Volume it always copies so you need to press Command while dragging. Let us know if this is the case.

    Yes, I was dragging from my SSD drive to my hard drive. So, you’re saying, if I wanted to move instead, I should just use “command” plus drag?

    Yes. The default behavior is:

    Within the same volume
    Drag - Move
    Option + Drag - Copy

    To a different volume
    Drag - Copy
    Command + Drag - Move
