    Your imagination is right. In version 22 (15.2) it works fine, with or without the "Edit all selected" setting, which is the closest setting I can imagine having a potential impact on multiple vs. single images.

    Yeah, I just discovered that now I have to enable "edit all selected" in order to move multiple images.  I don't remember ever having to do that before.

    For me, if I select multiple files and then use the shortcut to move them to Selects (Cmd-J) it moves all of them at once only if edit all selected is enabled, but it has always been like that for years, as far as I remember.

    I usually have Edit All Selected on nearly all the time, but I remember there have been a few times when I have used Cmd-J to move files to Select, wondered why they didn't all go, and then remembered that for some reason I temporarily had Edit All off.

    (I am on a Mac, but I can't think that there is any reason why this should be different in Windows.)

    Thanks for that shortcut tip, I wasn't aware of that CTR-J.  But then, I hardly know any of the shortcuts as I don't have the energy to sit and memorize a million shortcuts.

    Hi Ian Wilson,

    Yes with Cmd-J it moves only one if "Edit All Selected" is disabled, also in 15.2 for Windows. With drag&drop however, "Edit All Selected" doesn't matter, and I don't remember it ever did. If that changed in v23 then it is either a bug fix or a regression defect, who knows.

    BeO, I would expect drag and drop to work either way, and for me it does.

    Pam Anders - I don't know many of the shortcuts either, but that's one of the ones I do know as it's one I use all the time.

    It's too daunting to think about all of them, just learn them one by one as and when the need arises. Then eventually you'll be surprised how many you've learnt.
    Whenever you start doing a repetitive task and you get sick of it, you'll think "ah, there might be a shortcut for this", so you look it up, start using it, and because you've been repeating it, it'll stick in your head. Then sometime down the track the same will happen with another one, and another one, . . . .
