The new rich content editor has many great features. I would like an improvement to how images are chosen from course or user files in the Add menu. Can we add the ability to see images organized by folder? While we can see files by folder by using "All" as the Type, it makes a link to the image rather than embedding it. "All" also creates links when selecting documents and media.
Current Workflow Problem: Embedding files with the Type "Image" involves choosing from a list displaying up to 50 images at a time, and requires scrolling to the bottom to click the Load more button to see more. This creates a difficult workflow for courses with a large number of images, particularly because you have to start over for every embedded image, scroll down, load more, scroll down, load more, multiple times. Then there is a wait time for each lot of images to load.
Use cases: Being able to select the desired folder will work well for courses that have hundreds of images (art courses for one); that have images organized by topic for quizzes; are in departmental courses where multiple people are creating content.
One solution would be a checkbox to display the images by folder. This will benefit when embedding documents and media as well. It could say "folder view", "display by folder" or some other text.
Inspired by this idea and comments, folder organization will work well in conjunction with pinning the sidebar: https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/15792-new-rce-pin-the-sidebar" modifiedtitle="true" title="New...
