Hello,

In Eclipse or NetBeans,I copy any file in some folder with Ctrl+C,then I can paste it to my project in IDE just press Ctrl+V.

In RubyMine,I can't do this,so if I want to copy some files to my project,I must open the folder of my project in Explorer,then paste it,and it will appears in the IDE,how can I paste files to my project in IDE just press Ctrl+V?

Unfortunally RubyMine doesn't support neither drag and drop nor copy files from folders outside of RubyMine.

Inside RubyMine you can do this: select file in project view, press Ctrl+C, select destination folder in project view and press Ctrl+V.
Also we have clone file action: select file in project view and press Shift+F5.

Regards,
Oleg

RubyMine allows you to have not more than 1 project per frame opened. And copying is allowed only inside one project.
Sorry for such inconviniences, maybe will be fixed in future.

I know this is an old post, so just for the records:
In recent RubyMine versions both drag and drop and copy/paste from native file explorer works fine.
(Tested on Windows and RubyMine 2.5 EAP)

Stephen,
Thanks for clarifying it. Drag and Drop also works on MacOS
