I would like to be able to group materials in different folders, tabs and so on.
For example all wood related substances should go in wood substances folder. Same goes for metal ones, then same with plastics and so on.
Otherwise its a mess right now.
How is this not implemented yet? Such a simple feature to add..
I ran into the same issue. Would love to see the possibility of Tabs even better Custom Folders in the Shelf. Especially growing Texture Library make it a mess as currently under the Texture TAB for example are Alphas, NRM maps, Images and such. It would speed the workflow a lot. Sin SP version 2.1 it seems currently that the right-Click DELETE option is missing for textures etc. Only works for Materials, Brushes etc. is this a bug or to be added maybe ?
Thanks a lot!
Thanks for the plan. We want our libraries to grow :)
its great shame the OP of this post back in May 22 2015 and knows its Feb 2016 and still only "PLANNED" should been started all ready
i did post this some time ago.
patrick_14 that option is not going to help.
The point of giving option to create a folder under material and other tabs is to organize SP according to personal preference. Every artist has different needs. So artist can tailor SP according to their needs.There are many material in SP which i am never going to use it. But they are in the shelf.
By giving the user option to create a folder will make artist life easy. If i am making plastic, instead of scrolling through the material list. I will simply open the folder under material tab which contains all the plastic material. I can even have sub folders like damaged plastic, clean plastic and so on.
+1 for this idea.
Please give user the option to create a group. Where user can select many material in material tab and group it under 1 folder.
Could I add on option of list view .. ie just the names .. no icons.
