Move to Folder, From Folder

Recommended Posts

Hello--

This seems like a small thing, but I would like to see the option to move a track to a folder even when it's already in a different folder.

Right now to move a track from one folder to another, you have to remove the track from the first folder, locate the track, then move it to a new folder.

 

Thanks,

+1 to this.

Thanks. That isn't so easy when you have very large numbers of tracks, especially when the source and target folders are "out of sight" from each other (separated by so many tracks they aren't viewable on the same screen without drag-scrolling).

I got a +1 and a -1. Any tie breakers?

+1 from me too. I also find dragging tracks a bit awkward sometimes. You can’t drag a track to be the last track in a folder, it always ends up outside it. The only option is drag it to second last place then drag the last track above it.

Thanks! There we go. Do any admins review the posts in this forum topic to determine if the suggestion is something they're going to implement?

Pretty sure that's possible already, not in my studio to check though.  But you can move any track(s) to any folder via the Track Menu , I don't drag and drop any more when sorting into folders as it can be flaky as per @Eamonn Dargan mentions.

But the menu has an option to move to a given folder so I presume it works regardless of whether those tracks are already in another folder.

it’s a small thing but I encounter it enough times in my workflow that I would find this very useful 

Yes seems logical you should still be able to jump from folder to folder in this way.  The dragging around of them between Folders in the track view is hit & miss I find...folders jump around and strange things happen sometimes.

You can drag a track and drop it into another folder today. There is no need to remove and add it manually...

So, Noel--

We've gotten quite a few agreeing that the drag and drop isn't as fluid as being able to move from one folder to another--the same as you can move to a folder now (if the track isn't already in a folder).

Is this something you would reconsider adding as an enhancement?

 

Thanks!

I see no reason not to implement this. So count me as +1

Adding this, I suggest a StudioOne's function, 'Pack Folder'. 

1. Select tracks.

2. Click 'Pack Folder'

3. One folder be generated and all tracks are bounded, automatically. It is very convenient.

But I hope one more step, "It asks for me to enter the name of the folder before it is generated."

For many musical  arrangers of orchestra(they must  manage massive tracks) , this function is very helpful.

That's sounds like a very useful workflow

Also, it would be nice to be able to add folders WITHIN folders. How about a +1 for that 😀

I already asked for that in another post a while back  " Nested Folders "
