Hi, I would swear that the folder, the one currently selected in the Library Module, its contents are visible in list form in the left hand column of the Develop Module. After all these years is this something I just imagining?!

Thanks John. I mean, I know you have to change your position in the folder structure by either going back to the Library module or selecting a recent source from a pulldown menu, but I would've sworn that until tonight the contents of the current folder were listed rather than just available in the filmstrip mode. I think my brain has played a trick on me. :-0

If you have a robust set of collections which to a large degree mimic your folder structure - as many ofmy clients to - it is not unreasonable to think what you're seeing in the left panel group of the Develop module as being folders when in fact you are looking at the Collection panel.

In the filmstrip, you do have a flyout menu of recent sources - ie folders or containers
