So at @DaveR 's and others gentle prompting today on the live session I have decided it’s time to move beyond my previous method of organizing collections of components. Thanks for the push, it’s high time. I had organically built up several “build template files” over the years for different kinds of design that already have many commonly used components for a given task ready to insert from the in model component window. This is a kludgy way of working that makes for gigantic template files and forces me to purge before sharing a file, dumb but it was working and was fast. I’ve started building up some custom local collections to try to take the place of this. Questions:
Am I correct that there is no search function within a custom collection? If I type a search into the search field above my collection it goes to the warehouse?
Is there best way to organize this by making use of the file hierarchy, having labeled folders and sub folders? This does not seem to work on my MAC, I cannot see sub folders, just the folder contained in the parent folder “components” but nothing deeper?
Once my collections gets over 50 items or so, how can I quickly find what I want?
Is there are way to adjust the “List view” order in the components window?
What other cool tips am I missing?
