DescriptionPress top BROWSE button on Tools|Options|Downloads/Podcasts ... the path browser dbox that is opened has confusing instructions

Verified 2165, however, in doing so, I noticed that the dialog is still lacking:
- ability to create a folder (as in MM4)
- ability to choose a mask (missing in MM4)

Would it make sense to use the same 'Directory chooser' for this as is used e.g. in the Auto-organize 'configure...' button ?

ok, added the same 'Directory chooser' as in the Auto-organize, i.e. with the 'configure...' button etc.

Fixed in 2166

1) yes, 'New folder...' button is missing, but
a) is cumbersome in MM4 and does not work as one would expect, I also doubt that this was used much
b) it is redundant, as user can easily put the new folder to the 'Main directory' path and the folder will be auto-created

2) The 'Select folder' dialog lists also 'Google Play Music' and media servers, these shouldn't be listed there!

=> 2) is fixed in 2167

2. Verified 2167

1. Sounds reasonable. According to b) may I suggest that "Select folder" be renamed to "Select main folder" to be more clear that user is not selecting destination folder, but main/root folder for destination mask as that way we imply b) auto creation based on destination mask?

Now 'Select main folder' appears in other contexts where it should just indicate 'Select folder'. I'd suggest reverting this (i don't think it was confusing to begin with).

What about "Folder Selection"? It is more generic?

Reverted to 'Select folder' in 2170

Close if 0015521:0053210 is not better.

I reviewed both usecases and the current wording ('Select folder') is good (and the term 'Folder selection' doesn't offer any adwantages).

Agree, closing for now.
