Working With Folders | Add and remove

Adding folders

With Connecter you will need to locate only the folders where your 3d models and related files are. To start creating your custom folders list in Connecter you can:

  • Just drag a folder (or multiple folders) and drop it in Connecter’s Folders panel.

  • Or use the “Add folder” icon in Folders panel’s header.

Now you have your first folder added – we call it “Root folder”, and you can add as many root folders as you like.

Removing folders

Only Root folders can be removed. To do so, hover your mouse over the folder, then hover over the icon that appears on the right and click “Remove” in the context menu.

Working With Folders | Hide and ignore

When you add a root folder in Connecter all its subfolders are added as well. In Connecter there are two options to get rid of any of the subfolders you don’t need to see:

Hiding folders

To hide a subfolder, hover your mouse over it, then hover over the icon that appears on the right and click Hide from the drop-down menu. The folder is no longer visible in your folders panel.

Show hidden folders

If you need to use your hidden folders, at a later date, simply click on Folders in the panel’s header, and check “Show hidden folders” in the drop-down menu. Now all your hidden folders are visible again.

Unhiding folders

To unhide an individual hidden folder, first make sure “Show hidden folders” is checked. Now hover your mouse over the folder you’d like to unhide, then hover over the icon that appears on the right and click “Unhide”.

Ignoring folders by name

In Connecter it’s so easy to filter out by name folders you don’t really need (e.g. “Temp”, “Work”, “WIP”).

To ignore folders by their name, go to the Folders panel drop-down, type the folder’s name you want to filter out and click the + button. A new folder will appear in the drop-down with the folder’s name you’ve just filtered.

All folders with that name will no longer be visible in your folders list.

To clear an existing ignore filter, go to the Folders panel drop-down, hover over a folder’s name in the “Ignore folders” list and click the x icon that appears.
