Description Abhay S. Kushwaha 2012-10-11 17:08:01 CEST
Let's say your folder tree looks like this:

\ inbox
\ folder 1
\ folder 2
   \ subfolder a
   \ subfolder b
   \ subfolder d
\ folder 3
\ folder 4

If you select an email in "inbox" and select "Move" in the right-click dialog box, it shows a "Select folder" dialog box.

you type "folder 2" so that the selection becomes "folder 2"

You hit "New" in the dialog box to create a new folder. Call this folder "subfolder c".

The new folder is created and shown between "subfolder b" and "subfolder d"

The interface shows "subfolder c" selected.

If you hit "ENTER" to move the mail to this folder, it doesn't. While it shows that "subfolder c" is selected, it's only highlighted. The selection still is "folder 2".

Paul, it probably works for you in the sense that the email is moved. However, it moves to "folder 2" and not "subfolder c" as would be expected. That is the bug.

No, it works for me in the sense that the mail is moved to "subfolder c" as expected.

You are not following the instructions to replicate the bug. Here, watch this:

I followed the instructions in your first comment, but your text in the video says what you didn't say the first time.

'You hit "New" in the dialog box to create a new folder.'

'Use Alt + N to create a subfolder'.

It wasn't clear that 'hit' meant 'use Alt + N'.

Now I can reproduce what you report. Certainly the 2 different highlighting styles lead to confusion.

Cool. Video: 1; Plain text: 0.

please, let's not encourage video submissions - it was the text in the video that had the pertinent information
