Move Favorite to Folder option
  • Hi,
    Currently, you can move a favorite into a folder by pressing and holding the name of the favorite and moving it to the folder.
    This works well if you have few folders, but when you have 5 folders, the favorites go to any folder because it does not stay during the whole move.
    A click on the favorites opens a menu and it would be nice to add "Move to a folder"
    Yesterday I had to edit my Favourites.xml file to manually move a favorite to the correct folder, this is not ideal.

  • I have the same issues. Moving favorites to folders is one of the many thinks I really like in Navigator. But it is not any longer possible to move a new favorite to a folder. Editing the xml-file sounds like a good work-around to cope with the issue.
    BTW - I do have 12 folders with around 100 favorites.... An option even add subfolders to folders would be a nice-to-have wish.
    Greetings,

  • I second this change request. When trying to move a favorite into folder, the chance is > 90% that it ends up in the wrong folder - and you don't even see in which folder it lands. You'll only dosciver that by opening all folders one-by-one,
    I used to have a workaround by renaming the desired fodler, to make it start with "zz" (so it is at the bottom when sorted alphabetically). In that case it was far easier to make the favorite land in that folder.
    But now I can't figure out anymore how I renamed a folder ...
  • Moving favorites to a folder worked much better in an older version of Mapfactor. There, you could select something like "move to group" (floowed by selecting the destination group)  after clicking on the respective favorite.
    I would LOVE it would be implemented like that again!
  • We have done a redesign of drag&drop for items in Favourites and My Routes, check new version
  • @Filips,

    I don't think drag and drop is a good solution.
    The best would be :
    - click on the favorite
    - the usual menu opens with:
                             - Navigate
                             - Set as Start
                             - etc...
    add:                   - Move to folder
    Another menu opens with the existing folders and we select the folder
  • Hi,
