It surely must be possible to use the capture mechanism to browse the
captured material.

I use Org-Mode almost every day, usually in capturing notes to a large
number of dedicated files.  My capture templates many---too many, perhaps.
 It would be really useful to be able to browse the files associated with
these templates directly through the capture mechanism.

Has this been implemented?

I'm not sure I have a clear picture of what you have in mind, but
perhaps org-capture's GOTO prefix argument does at least some of what
you're after.

Yes, it seems to do what I have in mind.   Very nice!

All I have had in mind, up to now, is a way to visit the file directly from
Capture, without needing to use org-agenda.

Thank you,

Alan
