Grouping Content into General Catalogs

General catalogs can contain items of any type. These are the most frequently used catalogs, and typically provide the basic structure of a library. 

Create a gENERAL Catalog

  1. Select the parent catalog that your new catalog will belong to (if applicable)
  2. Select the New Item icon, then select General and choose the catalog type ('General Catalog' in this case)
  3. Enter a Name for your new catalog and click OK.

Copy Items into a gENERAL Catalog

There are two ways to move content into a General Catalog

Drag Content into a gENERAL Catalog

  1. Select the item(s) you want to reference in the catalog
  2. Make sure you can see the catalog you want to copy to, either in the or library catalog or a catalog window
  3. Drag the selected item(s) and hold it/them over the target catalog
  • If the cursor shows a small '+' below it, the item reference will be copied automatically
  • If there is no '+' below the items' cursor, hold down the the [Ctrl] key to copy the item reference rather than move it - the '+' sign will appear

   4.  Now release the mouse button to copy the item references to the catalog

Copy and Paste content into a General catalog

  1. Select the item to be copied to the General Catalog
  2. Press Ctrl + C or select Copy from the File menu
  3. Open the catalog that you want to paste this item into
  4. Enter Ctrl + V or select Paste from the File menu
