presets folders

Hi,,

I am using the latest version of IW and would like to suggest a feature. Under the presets it would be nice to be able to categorise each type of preset. IE be able to create folders for digital and litho and maybe even break them down into A5, A4 etc etc so its not just one long list.

Many thanks

Carl

So it's like presets folders, right? Out of the curiosity, how many presets you have? Would it help if presets were like project files that you can store anywhere?

To me personally "tags" are preferred over categories, maybe that would solve your problem as well? Checking few tags it would be possible to select presets for "business card", "A4" and "two-sided".

Hi, I have around 60 presets, so it would be great to break them down into folders and sub folders. For example we run digital and litho. So we could save the litho in on folder and the digital in another. Then sub folders like booklets, leaflets, business cards etc etc

If IW could read the folders within the presets folder so that we could manually put them where we want, that would be fine, too. I don't mind manual organization. :)

I have 60 some odd presets... all used with frequency. Some by imposition size and qty up on the sheet, some by name. Just being able to consolidate like imposition presets would help.

The first picture is my current Presets folder:

Since organizing is something very personal to each user, I think this may be the ideal solution... fully customizable from Finder. No need to enter the program to organize. Just create folders, name as you want, drop in the presets you've already created (or have the program save to a choice of these folders or allow new ones to be created.)

Thoughts?

Just want to note that version 3 lets you drag and drop presets into the application like you do with PDF files. So you can have a separate folder of presets arranged the way you need and simply drag them into the software.

It may be not a perfect solution, but it is at least something.
