Map Page Folders

Score + 3
I've noticed that when you have a large number of map pages it can be hard to move them around or sort though them, so i'm suggesting two ideas: either a way to drop down the page scroll area to make it multiple rows tall (allowing you to see more pages at once) and or allowing DMs to put pages into folders that can be opened and closed as per the title of this topic

There is already a long and multi-year suggestion thread for this, such as&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/1618045/a-better-way-to-organize-pages/?pagenum=1" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/1618045/a-better-way-to-organize-pages/?pagenum=1</a> &nbsp;and&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/2142982/much-needed-map-features-sorting-folders-portal-links-and-more" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/post/2142982/much-needed-map-features-sorting-folders-portal-links-and-more</a> . In the meantime, what I do is archive all of the maps I am not likely to use and then restore them as needed. This keeps my active maps fairly manageable and its really easy to restore archived maps. It is certainly not a great solution but much better than having to scroll through an endless list of maps, like I have when running previous campaigns.

Note that archiving maps gets less-used maps out of the way, but they are still loaded with the game and too many maps will slow down a game and could make it harder to load, run, and copy. You should periodically go through your archived maps and delete any that you no longer need to keep the game size down. If you are a Pro subscriber, you have another option: You can use the Transmogrifier to copy your map pages to a storage game, and copy them back as needed.

Managing maps as a GM is pretty difficult and the controls for that don't work so well. I manage cause I have a mouse wheel that also lets me scroll left and right with it, but even still it can be finicky.

One can also use the Stylus browser plugin to add more rows to the dropdown of maps. See here: <a href="https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/7145573/" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/forum/permalink/7145573/</a>
