Long time I don´t post my dumb questions here in PCount, but exactly now one of them are glowing in my mind. I´ve to ask...
Is there a way to improve the workflow when dealing with Files?
With my english it´s kind hard to explain, but that´s the situation I had right now (and probably many of times during the day)...
I´m texturing in PS and using 3ds max to see the model. For some reason I export an .obj to Deep UV and .. bang... I´ve to choose a folder to save the file. And there´s a long way to reach that folder (since it´s in a network server).
Then, In Deep UV I opened the File-Open menu and ... bang... another travel to the same folder.
And that repeats, repeats and repeats every time during the day when I need to save, open or find a file.
Days ago I was trying to fix that annoying thing using a Shortcut for my projects folders in estrategic places of the disk. It works well, but I was thinking in some more fast and cool.
I think the great problem is that every application in Windows store a recent folder list position. You´re always forced to "navigate" through your disk. And that "navigate" stuff that I think can be improved.
A friend of mine said 2 monitors is a really good way to be more fast when dealing with files (copy, paste, move, navigate, etc.). But It´s not a real solution.
The only thing I can imagine it´s a kind of software who store in a common place a link for all the files you´re using. The file remains in the proper folder, but that software get all the links to reach them ... and that can be easilly acessed by the File-Open/Save menus of the another softwares running.
I think in Linux you have the concept of virtual links for the files, but I don´t know it really works in a pratical way.
Does it make sense? Just really like to hear from you some experience, feedback or tip about the subject any "shut up and get back to work" is welcome too.
That´s it. Now let me try to find some files.
