I don't think we have bumped into each other in either this or the official User-to-User P1 forum.
I wrote to Tech Support and was told that (2), the duplicity check has existed on the MACs. I am on a PC. That is another thing heavily bugs me: the difference between C1PRO functionality on MACs and PCs. The following example is a great way to make a point or giving a strong argument towards platform uniformity.

, I was going crazy. I couldn't find the functionality Paul was telling me about. Because I posted the thread in the PC version of C1PRO7, I had assumed that everyone engaging me on correspondence are also on a PC. Finally Paul agreed with me that my request would be a great feature for the PC version of C1PRO7.
Getting back to my original request for evolved cataloging functionality, perhaps "copy-and-delete" was poor choice of words. I should have elected to use "MOVE"
instead. I thought, in terms of basic computing, when files are "moved," they are being copied and expunged at the core. I asked this request because Lightroom has it since it came out in almost seven years ago.
To re-summarize, I started this thread because I know there are several dedicated C1PRO users and in order for feature requests to be considered, the requests must have votes. I am hoping to win your agreement and vote for the feature requests in a close, next point update of C1PRO7. When you vote, you have to log into your P1 account and write to Tech Support either referencing this thread or completely re-composing the same requests.
Now we haven't bumped into each other until now.
You are right and I apologise. I didn't carry out my own sanity check when thinking about platforms.
With regards to moving files, technically that doesn't happen in a catalog with managed files. What you are really doing is 'importing' which etiquette would dictate that the files are copied.
As Lightroom does not have the ability to have fully managed files (i.e. inside the catalog database file) the Lightroom behaviour is somewhat different and cannot be compared, in my opinion.
Within Capture One, if we are copying from memory card then I would argue it is not a completely necessary step to delete the contacts of the card. Far better to format the card once it is placed back in the camera for fresh images.
If we are referencing files in their current location, then no action is required.
If we want to reference them in a different location to they currently are, move them from within the file system of your computer, and then initiate the import process.
Just some suggestions which I hope are helpful.
