Is there a way to create folders to organize my designs?

Yeahhhh… I appreciate the offer of advice, but that’s not remotely convenient and is nothing like being able to organize the in-app browser. It’s several extra steps, because of all the exporting and importing, and this is exponentially more inconvenient and unwieldy if you’re making regular changes and updates to your designs.

I fear your workaround has been interpreted by Shapr to mean there’s no problem with the basic functionality of their app when it comes to file management, but there definitely is. Any kind of in-app organization structure, like a search bar, or colour-coding, or folder/category organization, would make the app several times more usable (as would making all Shapr documents visible in a Shapr folder inside Files by default, like many other programs—such as Pages, Affinity Photo, and Lumafusion—already do).

Honestly it would be far more useful if instead of a manually managed project list, the app just presented a view of its folder in iCloud Drive, avoiding the need to tediously transfer files between devices over and over.

If Shapr3d isn’t using the .shapr format internally — if it’s just for import/export — then maybe this is more difficult, which could explain the constant exporting and importing and reexporting and reimporting the app requires. From the outside it certainly seems like transparent syncing between devices is table stakes for a multiplatform app in 2021, and that everything else should be dropped until it’s implemented, but I trust the developers have good reasons this can’t be done or needs more discussion first.

Even a purely in-app solution, though, would be tremendously more useful than the current situation. And there’s obviously some kind of metadata handling already in place because it moves the most recently-opened document to the top.

having folders in Shapr would be awesome - did it really slip of the roadmap since 2019 - couldn’t think of anything more important to realize quickly

According to our current plans, we’re looking to provide an in-app, cross-platform project syncing solution first, then look at providing better tools to organise existing projects.

Hold tight for updates!

I hope this is getting traction? Really important feature!
Otherwise I’m enjoying this app.

Any updates on this. Seeing the first message about this dates back to 2019. Is the roadmap having any dates on it :slightly_smiling_face:

I need this too. probabably more than any other feature.
I have more than hundred designs yet and it’s a pain to find an old one…
So please add a possibility to organize the files.

So glad this is starting to get some attention! Any guesses as to how far down the road this is?
