Does anybody know if we can filter or isolate a certain folder in the library browser?

What are you trying to do? Search only one folder, or keep from searching one?

I am trying to isolate one folder in the library browser' so I don't have to see other ones when creating a few manufacture cabinets.

I am not sure if this option is available,

when I am working with Cinema 4D we have an option to filter folders, which makes it a much cleaner and easier approach in dealing with symbols.

Open the Library Browser.

Up in the top right hand corner is a button that is a funnel and a plus sign called Manage Library Filters.

That will allow you to set up the filters you are after.

You can save the filter for reuse later.

Click on the Manage Filters Icon ( Funnel? with a red+) and you can select the folders and library to HIDE in a custom Filter , though I am not sure it can isolate the exact folder you want ?  I have filters for Core, Bonus, Manu. and User setup though.

 

***Note: the check boxes HIDE what you don't want to see in a Filter ie it works opposite from what you expect ...or at least what I expected.

If the question is can you filter individual folders within the user catalog (which I think it is) the answer is no. That has been requested, make the suggestion again.

I'm set up so that all my work is done from the user library for efficiency. It would be a big help to be able to filer it since it is extensive.

The solution I use when adding a brand catalog or a lot of new symbols is to make sure that everything is already in folders-the bottom of the user library is blank. Then name the folder that I will be placing everything in so that it ends up at the bottom of the folder list -Z_new stuff- or whatever. I rename it later.

Also use a trick to move folders that I will be working with so they end up at the top of the list-"   A__Tirebiter" etc.(I often set up a folder for individual projects copying items to it from elsewhere (NOT shortcuts) so that if I have to change things in a DBX I don't have to click around the library.

Mark, you are right, I am trying to filter an individual folder within the user catalog, and thank you for your suggestion.

Glen & Mick, thank you for the suggestion, I am aware of that option,

though when using the filter the user catalog is not included in the view, see attached screen shot.

That looks correct Habdou , everything should be selected  , so that when you search the only place it looks is the User Folder .

 

You don't see that in the Manage Filters Window as the Filter System works backwards ( to my thinking )  as mentioned , the DBX only shows what you want to hide not what you want to see included in a filter.

      I am having an issue with the Library Browser where even when the top left Icon and in the view tab icon is show with a check mark to indicate being open but there is no sign of the Library Browser actually popping up on my screen or right sidebar, next to the Project Browser, as I have used it before. Has anyone else had this issue? Am I missing a setting that would hide the Library Browser or does this sound like a glitch/issue?

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      Hi All.  
      Was working with two monitors - down to one, and now my library won't pop up.
      Did the obvious.
      Restarted,
      Reset Displays.
      Nothing.
      Am I missing something?

      Hi,
      I'm having an issue with X9 - anytime I open an item and try to change the material type, I get a pop-up box that says "searching for files" and it appears to be searching through my file folders, but it's on a continuous loop searching the same folder endlessly so the search message isn't going away and I have to force stop the program. I've tried opening different files to see if it was just happening with a possibly corrupt file, but it's happening with several different files so I don't think thats it. I called the help line and they are not familiar with the problem. They said I should try my luck here. 
      Anyone have this problem?

      Hello!
       
      I got a new computer (old and new are both Windows) and while the program and my plans transferred okay, my bonus and purchased libraries didn't transfer over. All I have is the basic core library. I've done some searches to try and figure out how to get them back, but I haven't found anything.
       
      Any suggestions or help on how to get my bonus and purchased library back would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I haven't figured it out on my own yet and don't know where else to look so I'm hoping someone here might know. 
       
      TIA!
