How to "select all" in a module view

Is there a way to "select all " Requirements from within a module in DNG? I was expecting to see a selector where the blue arrow is below, but nothing is there.
In order to select multiple requirements in this module I would have to manually select all of them.
Is there an easy way to accomplish this in DNG? This is from Version 5.0.2

There is no select all in Module view.

However, you can select all artifacts in a page with the following steps:
1. Select the first artifact
2. Use vertical scroll bar to quickly scroll to the very bottom
3. Hold shift while Select the last artifact
Viola! All artifacts in that page are selected.

While not a single step select all, but this method is just 2 steps more :)

 I'm not sure there ever was a Select All within a module.  There is one when you are browsing for artifacts in the Artifacts page, but that page is limited in how many artifacts are shown at a time, where as modules can have 100s or 1000s of artifacts and a select all would not perform well.

I see the Select all check box in 5.0.2 with iFix 6.  That's the only version we have.   A quick search in the ifix readme ( ifix2, ifix3, ifix5, ifix6 ) doesn't reveal much in this respect.

Not in a module, only in folders or other non-module artifact views. See Kirk's answer. I believe this is an existing change request

Do you have the URL for the workitem (change request)?

Sorry, no, I don't. I was writing from (possibly faulty) memory

Seems to work in 5.0 but limited to 200 artifacts or less.  Still useful though, thanks!
