“Lost” content folder in categories

I like to categorize my older content in Daz 3 then import it into Daz 4. (Gen 4 stuff mostly, some poser stuff). I had put a folder in the wrong place and went to drag it somewhere else and my finger slipped and it’s disappeared. I’ve looked in all ‘nearby’ folders and can’t find it. When I import Daz4 sees it in the same place it started in but I’d still like to find it in Daz 3 so I can move it where I wanted. Is there a way to do this?

Also, is there a way to do categories in Daz 4? I’d like to organize my Genesis content in a similar way to how I’ve done my G4 content.

Oh the dreaded slip…Been there and done that but to be honest I have never found a way to retrieve it apart from looking in every folder and sub folder. Yes a pain as it could be anywhere.

In DS4.5 right click on the content you want to Categorise and choose “Create Category From” whislt in the Content Library Pane (not Smart Content)

I’ve tried but haven’t found it yet. Still, I guess I’ll go looking for it. Can you do drag and drop in 4.5?

If you know which assets were in that category, do a search for them, or find them in the Content Library/Product view or in the Native Folders view. From there you right-click the asset and select Categorize. Studio will show you where it is by highlighting the relevant categories. That’s the easiest way I know of to find out where something is located.

Drag and drop does work, but unfortunately DS4 and up doesn’t merge categories with the same name, which is a bit of a pain.

Thank you Cridgit. That worked for me! I was able to find one of the items I knew and found the rest. It appeared they’d all seperated out of the folder I had them under in a completely different category so I just moved them one by one to where I wanted them to be. Problem solved!
