More Folders on taskbar on left

Post by Paradigm X » Wed May 12, 2010 3:14 pm

Hi

Much as the three folders on the left are very useful, i cant help thinking having more (maybe user add-able!) for other default paths.

At present I use library, tunes (music) and samples, but have to move around a lot in 2 and 3. It would be useful to have more folders. Theres plenty of room on the left and it shouldnt be hard to code i imagine.

Thanks :mrgreen:

right click on a folder
hit bookmark
can't rearrange the bookmarks which is a shame
but it's pretty handy

I had the idea of adding a 'Favorites' tab there (left panel), when you browse your samples libraries (some local, some on external hdd, etc), that for each sample on the list (tab 1, 2 or 3) you see 1 star besides the sample (boolean value) on=favorite and goes to favorites tab, off=non favorite, that way would be easier to find those samples I have used on other projects that I don't remember the location of the samples.... Let's say I used a explotion fx for a song which was located on my local HDD, and now I'm working on another track on which I want to add that same explotion fx (I know it's on my HDD but I have sample libraries on 3 different folders and within those 3 folders is a mess, somewhere in that mess is the fx), now I'm wasting lot of time by looking for that fx, If I have it on a Favorites tab would be quickly.... this for cases when you have a sample called 'VEE_130B_FX_19u183u' and I simply don't remember that name to use the search bar...

Definitely something that could be improved a little bit. It turned out that I need about 5-6 folders as favourites that can be accessed quickly. Rearranging bookmarks would also be great.
