I have to agree with you on this one as the "expected" (?) alternative method would be to create a "Project Indexes" schedule of drawings... BUT... a Drawings schedule cannot include a fraction of the fields that are possible in Drawing Manager (either the defaults... or if you click the ">" at the top right of Drawing Manager and view the other possible display fields).
This seems like an oversight that there is neither a CSV export nor a print function. I'm clicking "like" as a vote for your wish.

Project indexes work good but the list is incomplete. It does not pick up on anything placed on Master layouts. Any idea why it would not list a pmk placed on a story? I'm trying to capture info on what is linked to the project and combine the list with file sizes to weed out anything too large. Indexes seemed like a good idea but guess it's back to snipping and OCR of drawing manager.
