Now once you have items either ranked or labeled or both which we can still do on the same document, you can then come up to the upper right hand side of the bridge interface and you will see a menu here called Unfiltered. If you choose that you have the ability to show specific things, unrated items only, items that have been rated with say, two or more stars or five stars and then specific labels that we have got. So in this case, if I said show the green label only, we can see that only the file that has the green label that is applied to it is visible on the left hand side. Now, any photos will also show up in here as well, but you can see that just the files are left visible. If you want to you can you can go back up to Filtered again and specify Show All Items. That would just turn all of those settings back of so we can see absolutely everything.
There is one more thing that we can do which allows us to organize the files not based on label or ranking, but our own personal preference and that is simply to organize the images by dragging them. If we decide that this file is more important, we may be want to see it at the top of the list, simply drag it to the left hand side just like you would in Photoshop. So this is more like a light box view allowing you to adjust your files and put them into an order that you have easy access to. Now, this is not necessarily something that we need to do inside an InDesign files folder, but may be inside your images you are trying to organize things may be, say, we have Photoshop files at the top or illustrator files underneath. Simply clicking and dragging them is a very easy way to organize. Now, what we are doing there by dragging them is creating a custom view of these. So if we go to the View Menu we can see that down under the Sort option, we are currently set to Ascending Order depending on what we specified, but also down here at the bottom it says Manually. But if we went ahead and chose any of these others may be we choose By Document Kind, what it will do is now put all of the folders first then the InDesign documents and then any templates and preferences down here at the end. And this can happen inside any folder.
So let us say you have a main images folder that contains Photoshop and Illustrator files and you want to separate them out into easy to find list, simply go to that View option and tell it to sort by kind.
