While importing research for a legal brief I'm writing, I came across a feature that would speed up my use of Scrivener. I frequently pull in large volumes of research material (cases, copies of laws and legislative history, legal encyclopedia pages, and so forth). I then group these in folders based upon the part of my argument they support, so that all the research concerning a single issue is in a single folder.

To that end, it would be nice if I could select a group of research files in the binder and then clicking on the New Folder button would both create a new folder and move the selected files into that folder in one step. Is this presently possible in Scrivener, perhaps through a preference setting I may have overlooked? If not, adding such a feature would significantly speed up my research and help me keep things organized for writing.

Hi,

What you are after is Documents > Group (opt-cmd-G) - if I understand correctly, that does exactly what you want.

Hope that helps!
All the best,
Keith
