Show which references in Mendeley have been cited in a Word document

When working on extensive papers allot of papers are read and imported in Mendeley, but there is no way to check whether those papers have actually been cited in a Word Document. Something similar to the check mark that the native Word reference manager uses to identify which articles have been cited in the current document.

    And even more people are asking for it:

    "Mendeley citation editor option: to choose from list of papers already cited in this document's bibliography"

    "Dynamic folder inside Mendeley of references currently used in a Word-manuscript"

    please combine the votes (and rank it higher on the to do list)

    Following suggestions are the same:

    "add a button to the MS Word plugin that makes a folder in Mendeley of things cited in a given documen"

    "collection of articles that are cited in thesis"

    "move inserted citations in word to new folder in mendeley"

    "Report which references have NOT been cited in a Word document"

    Having mendeley creating a folder that includes the citation from a given word document would be great

    Is this idea similar to this one titled:
    "When writing a paper, could there be an automatic folder generated with all citations?"
    If so, they should be combined, no?

    I think there is at least one, maybe two, similar requests. I've made one of them. They should be merged so that it ups the vote count.
    Newer versions of EndNote does this and it's very useful when writing a MS with many (hundreds) of references.

    Smart folders for paper would be brilliant. Maybe make them linkable to multiple word files so working through drafts wouldn't be a problem
