Browser request: Bookmark improvements

Post by adam maggs » Tue Jan 12, 2010 4:16 am

Bookmarks are now an indispensable part of my workflow - and here are some improvements I'd love to see:

1. Truncated names by default when in the bookmark drop-down menu
- the file path is already displayed when you proceed to that bookmark
- if necessary, could include the last folder or directory name, then the bookmarked location

2. Rename option
- not to change the name of the actual location, but just the appearance in the drop-down
- could appear second in the drop-down menu, below Remove bookmark

3. Automatic ordering, manual reordering or a colour-coding option
- automatic ordering or colouring would help show locations of the same origin,
- manually reordering or colouring would have the advantage that locations that have similar purposes could be grouped
- I think a manual reordering mechanism would be difficult to implement
- automatically ordering by file path would be useful
- automatic colour-coding would be useful

4. Device Bookmarks or a "Most Recent" drop-down list for Devices/Presets

5. Bookmarked Search results or Smart Search folders
- for example, a search result that shows all audio files named Kick, regardless of it's folder or location
- similar to Smart Search folders in Mac OSX, it would update every time a new Kick sample is added
