How to load data and move items in Creation Kit Fallout 4
Before you can start creating mods, you will need to load some data from Fallout 4 into the Creation Kit. This will allow you to access and edit the game's assets, such as textures, meshes, scripts, sounds, etc. To load data in the Creation Kit, follow these steps:
Launch the Creation Kit from Steam or from your desktop shortcut.
A window will pop up asking you to select which data files you want to load. You can choose one or more files depending on what you want to edit. For example, if you want to edit the base game, select Fallout4.esm. If you want to edit a DLC, select its corresponding file, such as DLCRobot.esm for Automatron. You can also select any mods that you have installed and want to modify.
Click OK and wait for the data files to load. This may take some time depending on how many files you selected and how large they are.
Once the data files are loaded, you will see the main window of the Creation Kit with several panels and menus. You can use these tools to browse, edit and create new assets for your mod.
To move items in the Creation Kit, you can use the mouse and keyboard shortcuts. For example, you can left-click on an item to select it, right-click and drag to rotate it, scroll wheel to zoom in and out, WASD keys to move around, etc. You can also use the toolbar buttons and menu options to perform various actions on items, such as copying, deleting, locking, etc.

In the main window of the Creation Kit, go to File > Save As... and give your mod a name. This will create an .esp file that contains your mod data.
