Move (copy) with dialogue box?

I am a new user to KM and am impressed with it’s power. I was wondering if it is possible to have a Move Macro that displays a navigation box to drill down to a specific location rather than typing in a specific path (similar to what FinderPop and FolderGlance could do prior to El Capitan). My apologies if I just missed this ability in KM.

Yes, but not in the Move Action.
Prior to that action, use the Prompt for File Action to choose your file, and store the path in a KM Variable.
Then use that Variable in the Move Action.

Requires KM 8.0+.

Here is an example macro that makes clear how to use these cool new KM 8 Actions.

Thanks so much. I’ll give it a try.
