I tried Google Drive today and promptly noticed that the "organize" feature of Google Docs went from a multi-selectable checkbox (in which you can check multiple collections for a document to be "in"):

Organize in Google Docs

To what (appears to be) a single select version:

Organize in Google Drive

Personally I loved the flexible concept of document collections. Am I missing something? Is there another view that allows me to have that same document collection support? I realize that you can't have the same file in two folders, but I really didn't expect to loose organizational power/configuration just by giving it a "Try"...

How long has that been like that. Google used to have tags that you can more obviously have >1 tag per folder. –  justintime Jan 7 at 10:31

While in "organize" hold down the Control key for Windows or the Command key for Mac to select multiple places for your content to be "in".

Excellent. This does work for me. Is there an official documentation on this somewhere? –  automatonic Apr 25 '12 at 23:04
