Initial View : File Organization Sucks.
I want to have folders to tidy up my documents. I created the folders but I have to laboriously go through each document, press down on it, careful not to open it, then drag drag drag it up to the appropriate folder and drop it in. I did this a bunch of times only to find it had somehow moved everything into a nested folder I had, further messing up my document organization structure, yay.
Suggestions: provide basic file organization tools like in any app: a Select tool where I can choose a random selection of thumbnails via checkboxes, and for bonus points, make it friendly to power users who know the Shift, Alt, CTRL etc shortcuts to: make a group selection, add to group, remove from group, etc

hi - thank you for raising this
I was asked to add to this - hope thats ok :)
- my original submission kinda mirrors yours and I agree with what you say :)
idea for better file organization -Homescreen AI
introducing the idea of SECTIONS - create; rename and roll ur own (see UI mockup below)
the “Your files” are a mix of files/folders
- can this be ...
- first and foremost: Select multiple files (may or may not be consectutive)
- sorted by files/folders
sorted by date created
view auto by date created option
just as important - a lot of us create templates to reuse -
or are working on certain ‘right now’ critical files (any date created” or we simply want to flag certain files for whatever reason
introducing - the idea of SECTIONS in the file gallery
(see UI mockup pic below - attached png file
Sections (which I could name them for whatever purpose)
and would comprise:
a template section;
a files I am working on right now section; etc
would be - collapsable; reorder them; etc
and below that (or above that !) would be the standard
“Your Files section)
when I create say a new template and want it to appeqr in say a templates section that I create
…it could be annotated at the file level - along with file rename; file section ….somehow
or :smile: ! you can drag/drop - long press/slide file into the section you want
- ditto long press folder into the section you want ...
and if the file is waaay down your gallery of say 200 files and your section is waaay up north ....
- then select file: long press; get option to move/copy etc to ... Section .. (ie the Sections I create would show in a dropdown menu)
the UI mockup below says it all hopefully
if u like - please pass to Team Fr, PS and Team Creative Cloud
