I have several dozen databases, some of which exceed 100k entries. I also have many image folders that are exclusive to these databases. Under Tools>Folders> the options apply to any and all databases. I would like to see the option for calling out a separate folder for the different databases I have.

I don't quite understand as each database will have it's own and unique specific folder designated under Tools>Folders for the image folder.

No Vyger, the folders are program options not file options.

Although a program multimedia folder of RM-Media could have a subfolder for each RootsMagic database file and it would only be a click away from the default.

The multimedia folder is not very useful unless you store all your images in one folder. I don't have mine that way, they are in sub-folders. Having a separate multimedia setting for each database would be even more useless for me.

What I do is add ".\" (without quotes) to the multimedia file path name field. That way whenever I go to add new media it will take me back to the last folder I opened. Simple and fast.
