Help and Support / Loads of Folders Help
Why did you make this?
After I recording sound on location, I I like to keep all the audio files organised so the editors will have an easy time of syncing them up. Usually I would organise the files by Slate or Scene numbers. This ment I was regularly creating hundreds of sequentialy numbered folders by hand. So I made this app to help!
How does it work? (Geeky Details)
The app is written in “AppleScript Objective C.” Its mostly written in AppleScript but with a proper macOS interface. It uses the built in AppleScript support of the Finder to create the folders to ensure compatabilty across macOS versions. With custom code to instuct the Finder where/how many folders should be created, what they should be named, calculating numbering of folders and to give the user feedback on the proccess.
The app is sandboxed for extra security and It will not overwrite existing folders by design to prevent accidental deletion. The app will check for updates on launch but otherwise is completely functional offline.
Do you offer a Demo version?
Yes, the download on the page is a shareware version. When unregistered the App is limited to 30 folders. Buy the app to receive a serial number to register and remove this limit.
How do I pay?
I currently accept PayPal payments and various Crypto Currencies via CoinPayments
If you do not have accounts with either of these services just click “Paypal Guest Checkout” and you can pay with a credit or debit card.
After the payment is received I will send a serial number to the email adress you entered when paying with PayPal or CoinPayments. Seiral numbes are currently sent out manually so there may be a bit of a delay depending on your time zone.
How do I register the app?
After you have received your Serial number, click Register in the main window of the app, then enter your username and serial number. All limits will now be removed.
How will I recive updates?
The app will notify you of new updates when they are available. When you see this go to the Loads of Folders menu in the apps menu bar and click Check for Updates to see a list of changes and a download link. All updates are free.
I found a bug or have an Issue/Request.
Select Send Feedback or Feature Request from the Help menu in the menu bar. Or email me directly.
Will the App even interrupt me to ask for ratings?
Nope, however if you are enjoying using the app, a rating on MacUpdate or a share on Twitter or Micro.Blog woud be much appreciated. Go to the Help menu then Share or Rate for links.
How do I use Emoji’s in Folder Names?
I added a button for this in the app but it appears to be broken in macOS Mojave. Untill I can figure out how to fix this bug please click on the Edit menu in the menu bar. Select Emoji & Symbols to choose your Emoji of choice. My favourite has to be the 🦔.
Can Loads of Folders be Translated to my Native Launguage?
Im looking into this for a future version. I need to makes some tweaks to the app to allow me to transate it effectively but its defiantly something I would like to do. If you would like to help translate the app email me to let me know!
I lost my Serial Number or it is not working, how can I get a new one?
Users who purchased prior to version 2.6 will need a new serial number.
