ParaView currently embed 2 panel on the left of the file picker : the upper left is default folders from the system (eg Downloads, Documents, home, …) and the lower left are recent folders.
Feature : Add the possibility for the user to tag some folders as
Favorite and display them in the file picker. The initial design is to add a third panel on the left side specific to user favorites. These favorites should ideally be present in every related feature (open file, save screenshot, save animation, etc)
Some other ideas of design :
- Allow to edit the upper left panel to add/remove new folders
- Make tabs for all of the three panels. This add a click for the user but makes clear which tab is what by adding a label for each tab.
