Import to different document/folder
I import a lot of parts from my existing Solidworks library into Onshape. The problem I run into is I always end up importing into the document I'm currently in, then I have to move the item out to a new document which ends up in the parent folder of the document I'm in, from there I navigate out to the parent folder, where only then can I move that newly created document to the folder location I actually want it. I know I could open a new tab and navigate to where I want to import this new document to, but it would just be so much easier to select where I want to import the document to from the import dialog in the first place without having to open a new tab or navigate to a different folder.
I'm working in a document in my Projects folder. I want to import a switch from Solidworks. This switch is used in almost everything so I really want to import the switch into my Library Parts/Electrical Components folder. Because it's so easy just to hit the "+" icon and import that is what I do, but I don't get an option of where that import goes. It just defaults to the document I'm in. Then I have to go through the tedious process of moving it to where I really want it.
