    How do I simplify the Library ??

    is there anyway to make the "library" work like EVERY other file manager works ?

    I want to be able to import files and see them in a detailed list -- a list I can then sort by dates modified; by name; by size -- you know, like how every standard file manager has worked since at least the launch of Windows vers 1.

    How do I do this ?

    Clarifying  further, one of the primary reason I want a detailed list format is that I write useful descriptive info into the file names of clips.

    I need to be able to read the full name line.  Large icons maybe colorful, but they are of marginal informational value.

    yes thanks, I had found it already based on an earlier thread. i never would have seen the shortcut icon unless it had been described (poorly) by somebody else. 

    BTW, how do I edit an existing post ? this option is no longer visible to me

    The User manual shoud be your best friend.

    Didn't find it in the manual.

    In any case, I suspect my use of the "library" is somewhat irregular compared to how most others use it.

    I want both written text that generally describes what's in a larger file (i.e.:  B-roll Lyndi dancing; Peter tuning his violin; young girl making salad) 

    And importantly, I also use the detect scenes tool -- to create a sequential film strip that reveals at a glance the specific content of those files -- allowing me to quickly find / navigate to particular elements within those clips.

    Seems that it's no longer possible. I've warned the administrator of the forum about it.
