References in the Open Dialog

I know i can get around this using SW explorer, but in previous versions of solidworks, on the open dialog box, if you hit references, you could get a file browser to come up and just select a replacement file.  Now it comes up with a table and you can only manually type in the file name or change the folder.  And there's a useless "replace" button that for some reason does a "find and replace" like you'd expect to see in a word processor (it finds and replaces individual words, see image below).  Does anyone know how to get back that functionality that seems to have been lost with 2010?  Is there a better way?  Is this a bug and the replace button should pop up the file browser?  I'd typically do this to re-link a drawing to different part or assembly model.
