I have an assembly in a folder in vault that i want to move including the part files that belong to it and (if possible) the drawing files associated with it. You see this folder has a ton of junk in it and i want to clean it up. I figured the best way to start would be to click on the assembly file, go to the "uses" tab and drag and drop the pertinant files into my new folder. Then go back and get the drawing files (no junk drawing files) and move them. But Vault wont let you do that. Is there some way to isolate these files and move them without clicking on them one at a time?
thanks for any help,

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, moving files from preview pane (Uses/Where Used tabs) is not supported. You may need to select one associated file under Uses tab, click on "Go to Folder" from context menu and move it from main grid to the target folder.
The workflow you've proposed makes sense and I'll send it to our design team. Hopefully your feedback can be considered in future release.
Thanks Carol, yea it would be nice to have this one on the wish list. there have been many times i've wanted to do a simaler thing, although not exactly this, from the "uses" tab and of coures ran into the same problem. I havent tried it in 2010 and was hoping it'd been changed, oh well.
No, you can only search properties, they would all need to include an assembly specific property like a "next assy" User Defined Property. and even that is limited if you have other files like pdf's and such.
