I now have hundreds of files and dozens of folders in the binder. I wish I could split the binder and use the top part to pick a folder while the bottom part of the binder would allow me to scroll through the binder, find the files I want to move to a different folder in the upper part of the split binder and drag them there.

Or is there a different way to do this?

Hi,

You can do exactly this with the outliner. Click on the folder you want to pick so it opens in the editor, switch to outline mode, and then lock the editor (Opt-Cmd-L) so that selections in the binder won't change what's viewed in the editor. Now you can drag items from the binder into the outliner, and vice versa.

Hope that helps!

All the best,
Keith
