Use Drag-and-Drop to Export a Document from SAFE


Is there an easy way to export a document from SAFE to my local computer or to another application?


Yes. Users with document export rights can drag-and-drop a document from SAFE to their local computer. This method can also be used to attach a document to an outgoing email or to another application.

1. In SAFE, navigate to the document you want to export and highlight the document.

2. Hold ALT on your keyboard, then click on the document with your left mouse button and hold. A message will appear at the bottom of your document list indicating that the document is ready for export.

3. While holding hold down the left mouse button, drag the document to SAFE expolorer window, to a local file location, or to an application and then release.
