Need a better way to group large number of widget libraries

When you have a few widget groups listed under "My Widgets", the panel starts to get very long and cumbersome. I only have 3 widget groups, but that equates to over 150 widgets, so finding the one I want is very time consuming. The + and - icons make navigating through the widget groups frustrating as well.


Separating the widget groups and being able to view them separately would help immensely. Perhaps a drop down menu below the "Create, import etc.," icons for:


[ Show all widget groups ]


[ ----------------------------- ]


[ Widget group 1 ]


[ Widget group 2 ]


[ Widget group 3 ]


etc.,


Then you could easily view the widget group you're most interested in and get to your widgets quicker and easier.

Thanks for the suggestion. Just remember that you also have a search button at the top of the widgets panel to filter the widgets.

Yeah, not really helpful in my case. Imagine you're in Photoshop and had to type in the name of the tool you wanted to use. I can't remember what all the widgets are called.

I agree with this suggestion. When I first starting Justinmind, I imported all the Widget libraries to test them. I love them, but now they are a bit unwieldy. If there were two layers, that would probably help alot. For example, all the Ipad widgets would be a in section called "IPad". You could then expand the group and view the "IPad dialogs," "Ipad Background", etc.


By the way, I didn't notice the Search feature at first. It really helps.

We have a solution designed already but I'm afraid you will have to wait some months more. We have some things that have overridden the development of that feature.

I understand. This is not a high priority, just a "nice to have."
