Refactor > Copy in Project explorer


I tried to copy a directory structure in the project explorer today and encountered an unexpected result:

  • Select some directory in the project structure (e.g. a folder with some subfolders that contain resources)
  • Select Refactor > Copy... and provide some other directory as destination

The result is that all files of the source folder and its subfolders are copied to the destination folder. I expected that the directory structure would be recreated in the destination folder but actually it wasn't. It's just the files that end up in the destination folders.

Is this intended behavior or should I file an issue for it? If it is, why?
