Would you like to be able to create a directory when you copy or move a file with the file stored in a folder named based on the filename being coppied?

Yes, that would be very useful!

I have managed side-methods to do the very same thing. (Please share your ideas with a post here if you like!)

I'm curious, when would this be useful?

..just make sure there is an ABORT! and UNDO! sequence available. :)

Sorry, I can only think of times when I wouldn't want to have this kind of operation happen..

An example can be found on the link I provided on my first post.

I had read the 'TIP' thread, just have not been able to think of a time that I've ever wanted to do this..

No matter though! I love options, go for it.

Perhaps if available I would use it and find some use for it someday.

FWIW I've not voted on this.. Didn't see an "I'm confused" option. :)

Probably the question should have been stated as follows:

"Would you like to be able to automatically create a directory when you copy or move a file with the file stored in a folder named based on the filename being copied?"

A tiny word can make a big difference sometimes! ;)
