Our new responsive admin panel has some changes. The largest change is new dropdown boxes to select Models, Categories and DVDs when adding content.
Here are some tips and tricks that will speed your workflow using the new dropdown boxes.
Items with a grey background are already selected. Items with a white background are not.
This is useful to know when dealing with large lists. On page-load, items that are already selected show on the top of the drop-down list.

If you have lots of categories or models, narrow the list by typing a few characters.
You can press up/down to scroll
You can press enter to select a tag
Add an entry by typing
In some areas such as Models and Categories, you can add a new entry by typing and pressing return/enter.
You can also use comma (,) or semicolon (;) to separate entries.
Click the eye next to an item to view its page.
If available, you can click the eye next to an item to view the content.
Hold Shift to select multiple entries.
Hold Shift and click an entry to select it. While holding shift, click a second entry. All of the entries between these two items are also selected.
Text that is greyed out is content that is selected that does not match filter criteria.
Some sections have filter options. If a filter is chosen, items that do not match the filter have grey text instead of black text.
