managing embedded objects?

Doug Muir
My apologies, this question has probably been addressed here before (but 95 pages could take days to parse).
Single objects from sources, like BIMcomponents, are dragged into the open project. These are nested in this current project's embedded library. However, one may want to put them in a shared library, or do some minor edits, such as language in the panel, or clean-up some default (poorly executed) line work or materials.

The question is, how do you extract the object from the embedded library?

It would be great to be able to drag-and-drop within the object manager. (Been hoping for this since AC v.6. Maybe there's a key combination??)

Thanks for any help.
