Allow paste [Move] into Search Results

FEATURE REQUEST:
Allow user to Copy Item(s) and then do a Query and paste (move) into one of the Query results items.

USE CASE
One of UR's great strengths is that I can create a To Do task in my GTD inbox and then later assign it to a project. But when there are a LOT of projects the click and drag approach becomes cumbersome


When I get UR fully loaded I'll have this scenario:

I'll probably have 200+ projects.
I'm going through my Inbox and moving tasks to their appropriate projects. I'll probably select multiple tasks that all go in one project. I want to move them all.
It's very difficult to find the project I want to paste them into. If I do a Search then I lose my selection of Tasks in the Data Explorer window. If I use the Move/Link option it doesn't let me search for projects.

What I've tried:

- Link/Move - doesn't let me search to find the one project out of 200+
-Cut/Paste - After I do a search the past option is grayed out.

It would be great if I could :

-Cut item(s)
-Click on my 'All Projects' search and possibly do a keyword search for a particular project
-Right-click on the Project in question in the Results window.
-Paste

it doesn't allow to paste directly to the search results, but if you just hit enter (or double click) on the item you found, then you can

Thanks! You saved me a step

I didn't realize that when you double-click or hit enter on the search result that the Item is selected. (I previously was then scanning for the bolded (selected) project and then right-click and paste.

It's still a lot of steps, but less now.

What I've tried:

- Link/Move - doesn't let me search to find the one project out of 200+
The above is similar to a request of mine : See

Kinook Software Forums -
"Search for folder as I type and F3 to search for Next Match

Under Tools, Options, Import, I have ticked Select location when importing or pasting from other applications.

Thus when I have clicked Copy to Ultra Recall, a dialog box would appear allowing me to select the appropriate folder.

Selecting a folder would be a cinch if I had say 5 folders, but after a while, I may have 100+ folders.
