Select the files you want to find drafts for then Tools > Assistants > Where Used.

On the form that appears you can select the locations to search and whether to include/exclude sub-folders.

The Process Options button will let you restrict the file types to search for.

I have been told you must pick the top level assembly, and not the draft, to open revision manager and get all the involved drafts to work properly.

I think you can open RM from the draft and have it search on anything in the tree underneath it. It does the search on the files you've highlighted, not the top level file. Be sure you have the correct directories listed in the search path. That is my usual mistake.

The new design manager makes that process much much easier. You can now start with a draft, get the assembly and parts, then also add any other draft files associated with the assembly or any parts.

 

I never could get that working with the old revision manager where you copied a collection of related files including multiple drafts.
