select multiple items in catalog dockable window

Idea created by forknuts on Jul 13, 2015
    It's possible to select multiple items in ArcCatalog and then drag & drop them into ArcMap, however the same cannot be done from the Catalog window within ArcMap. Each item must be dragged separately from the catalog window, which can become time consuming (not to mention annoying!). Please enable selecting multiple items for dragging with into a data frame or into a batch geoprocessing dialog.
