Access another file (dwg) from Dynamo

Has anyone found a way to access several dwgs from within 1 dynamo instance? Seems like Dynamo is specific to the dwg you are in and you cannot really create things in other drawings if you do not have them open… thoughts?

Yes, so this is my same question. I would LOVE to be able to select multiple documents outside of the current one I have open!

This has to do with the bindings, 1:1 relationships between a Dynamo graph and a Document. In Civil 3D there is an attempt to remove this limitation and store the bindings within the Document rather than the graph. It has its own troubles but in principle should allow you to run one graph on multiple documents, just not yet.
