please bring back folder type

in your previous project manager we can easily assign folder for each type of files and was very convenient, but now we have to do one by one and sometimes I do mistake in typing folder or maps were saved in other folder for example. please bring back this feature, It is very handy and make our work very fast.

Hello,I' ve tried the demo


I' ve tried the demo and i've met with the following issues:
- when i save a material and the object has multiple modifiers, it save only the bottom one
- doesn't saves the vraydisplacement if that is applied to the object

Had anyone else met with these problems? (using max2014)
