In regrads to the file systems, i use the function lightroom provides to have folders which you choose at start up (Cant remember the official name). Basicall when i log into Lightroom i get to choose which main folder i want, i have several, weddings, friends & Family, Travels, Music gigs etc. Lightroom then loads up that folder which then holds only photos from that area which are organised in its own individual folders but keyworded across all folders.
Strange. I've been using LR since the early beta days and have yet to find that function. Are you by any chance referring to catalogues and are using different catalogues to store various events?
My issue is more getting lightroom to file photos in order of when the shot taken rather then file number from the same event. this way shots will all be in sequential order of the the event rather then based on file number. ideally i would import based on time and then rename to what i want/need them to be called and a new sequential number added. Does that make sense?
Bottom centre of the main Library window you will see the word
. By clicking on the up/down arrow next to it LR offers you a choice of how you want the images to be sorted in the particular folder that is open. By the way, although you can't yourself drag and drop i.e. rearrange images around when in the grid view (Library) you can if you create a Collection and drop all the relevant images into it.
