Hi,

I have this display problem that's getting more irritating the more I work in Studio:

- How can I remove/un-show old folders from the Navigation Pane in Files View (both Source and Target)?

I can now see in that pane folders going back to 2012, making it very cumbersome to view new folders (down at the bottom of that long-long list).

I tried to organize/delete the older folders in Windows Explorer, under [Project name]/he-IL [target side], but this didn't affect the Navigation Pane display one bit...

Does anyone have a solution to this irritating issue?

Thanks, Doron

Very easy Feb 6, 2015

In the navigation pane, right-click the folder you want to delete and hit "Delete folder".

Does't this work for you?

Walter

Easy, not so much... Feb 6, 2015

Thanks, Walter, I really should have mentioned this - there are 40+ of these; I can do it that way but it's so tedious...
I was hoping for a more batchy sort of way.

Is this because... Feb 6, 2015

... you keep adding folders/files to existing Projects? If it is why not work with separate Projects instead? If you use templates it's not tricky or time consuming, and then you'll never get into this situation.

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul! Feb 6, 2015

You mean to create a new project for every job?
This will simply move the problem to the Projects View, no?

(Btw, will we see you here in two weeks?)

Not really.... Feb 6, 2015

.... because you can filter on different statuses for the projects. But this is only going to be helpful if the reason for you having so many folders is because you keep adding to one project. If you just have large projects with hundreds of folders in one go then it probably won't help you if you want to keep the folder structure together.

Yep... I will see you in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to it!

Regards

Paul

There's still room for basic improvement Feb 6, 2015

Don't start me on this, but if there was a simple way to sort the files/folders by creation date (yes, date!) in one of the columns (either Files or Projects View), there wouldn't be a problem.
It would be simpler to put the latest ones on top and forget the rest.

Cheers, see you soon, Doron
