- What is the feature or ability you would like to have?
The ability to select lists/crates/folders (with shift or ctrl/cmd button as windows or apple os)
The ability to Copy/Paste the selected lists/crates/folders (right mouse button (copy)
Once copied, you just click the folder where the selection needs to be copied in. (right mouse button (paste)
- How will this feature help you and others?
I am going to explain by giving 2 examples.
Example 1 If you want to collect multiple lists/crates/folder into 1 folder, you can select them separate by holding CTRL/CMD and clicking the needed lists/crates/folders.
Now we can drag the selection into the needed folder in 1 movement. (basicly how our computer os’s (windows, apple, … ) work with filemanagement)
Example 2 I am a dj that mostly plays Drum & Bass music. This genre has many sub categories. For myself i have made these categories: Rolling, Breakz, Darkstep, Technoïd, Halftempo …
When i add a whole lot (recordlabel, artist, selection of favourites, …) my folder mostly looks like this:
- 01 Roller
- 02 Breaks
- 03 Darkstep
- 04 Halftempo
- 05 Crossbreed
Now if we can pre-make a folder-structure like this, which contains no tracks, as a template… We can put this template-folder-structure in the crate/playlist tree-list for future use.
Is this feature available in an existing product? If so, what product? it’s a basic workflow that os’s like windows / apple / … or music managers like iTunes use and it is a standard these days in most programs.
Does a workaround currently exist? Select and drag it all 1 by 1 Make the structure over and over again
How often would you use this feature? Each time i arrange my crates & lists
Is there any additional information you’d like to add? It would enhance a workflow and allows Engine Prime to feel more natural as a filebrowser too.
