Select large number of contiguous documents?
Posted on 2004-04-15
How do I select a large number of contiguous documents in a view? I know I can use the mouse or use the Shift+ArrowDown method, but this is very tedious when trying to select hundreds of documents. The functionality I'm looking for is the standard Windows UI method of clicking the first document and then holding shift and clicking the last document. Off course this doesn't work in Notes. I've searched help and can find no keyboard shortcut, but find it hard to believe one doesn't exist.
The workaround I've been using is to search for the documents I want (e.g. all document created in 2002) and then I Select All in the search window. This works but it is tedious. In many cases it would be simplier a quicker to just sort the view and then select the documents as I would in Windows Explorer or most other Windows programs.
