Sorry guys but this browser thing keeps getting me from time to time! Look at this example here, if we look at the item "Augmented", most people new to FL Studio would tell you its parent is "Stamps", but it is in fact "Melodic - Chords":
Another one, see the "Default" item, it's really hard to see which items are on the same level. That's because "Default" and "Arpeggiator" appear vertically aligned, so of course everyone will think these two items are in the same tree folder, but they are not, in fact "Default" is an item within "Arpeggiator":
I understand this is a feature not a bug, but every piece of software that features a tree view always displays children to the right of the parent folder. This is a very effective and intuitive way to represent hierarchy, and I think FL should embrace it as well instead of the current unusual implementation.
Here's an old mock-up I made for FL11 when I first posted this. Note how the all tree nodes, including files, are connected by a dotted line (unlike the current design) to make hierarchy super clear:
And here is what the browser looks like in Studio One:
In my humble opinion, the indentation scheme used in Studio One makes more sense to my silly brain. The fact that other users don't moan about a quirk doesn't necessarily mean they like it: it often means they've just chosen to live with it because it is not a huge issue. I'm only trying to make FL better, thanks!
