Having worked with the new library system over the last week or so, it's several orders worse than the model we had previously. It feels like this got put into production without any input from actual users. I would be shocked--SHOCKED--if you said otherwise. It's clumsy. It's non-intuitive. It's inefficient. The system was touted as offering improvements to organizing a library, so consider a common example. You create a folder called "dragons." Adding one or more items that you know are already in your uploads has to be done in one of the following ways: * You search existing content using the "dragons" keyword in the search box. Now that you're looking at the search results, you realize there is no way to drag a result directly into a custom folder because the folders have disappeared. All you can actually do is drag the element onto the tabletop for use. No organization possible. In addition, there's no context menu for items already in your uploads, and nothing you can constructively do to organize in this approach. * You do not search for "dragons" and instead scroll through the entire list of your already uploaded items. Search-scrolling like this is tedious and you have difficulty locating some of the items you want to organize, despite having tagged these in the previous system. By the time you find something, your customer folders are utterly out of view (at the top of the scrolled window). You now grab the handle of one asset and scroll again back to the top, hoping not to let the mouse button go on accident, until you find the folder you want to sort the item into. No context menu is available with a right-click, either. It's picking seeds up off the floor, one by one, hoping you get all of them into the jar you've set aside. * You double-click an item in your "recent uploads" and open the pop-out window to view your uploads. By far, this is the best of the three options. But it's still unimpressive. Because there is no way to filter results in the pop-out, you again have to play seed hunter to find what you want. In this mode, at least, you can still see custom folders on the right and may select multiple assets at once. That's a big plus and shows that whomever designed this used it this way themselves. There are some flaws here. For example, while tags can be edited in this mode, most are not visible without directly clicking on the asset's tag editor. The right mouse context menu has only two options: Select All or Delete selected. With a little bit of system lag and a frustrated user clicking the wrong way, I'm wondering if a person's whole library could be evaporated. Nonetheless, the pop-out window is the closest thing to a "file manager" available for a user library. It's crude and at least workable. -------------------------------------------- In all, this library improvement is an update that offers little functionality that we didn't already have with the old system. At the best of times, it feels as if things were merely shuffled around a bit. At the worst, it feels dysfunctional and poorly imagined. We have the ability to make custom folders, and the premium stuff is better organized by default, but those are the only high points of the update I can see. I know you can't do it now, but if it were put to a vote I'd rather see the old system returned until a better designed and tested update were put into place. I'm going to feel anxious when I hear about updates like this in the future.
