I use a lot of paths for detailed retouching. I often run out of pallet space and have to scroll thru my paths to find the one(s) I need.It would be a big plus if the paths could be organized into groups just like the layers pallet.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: Organizing paths.

Photoshop: At times I make a lot of paths in my work. Sometimes its a lot. So much so that I thought it'd be nice to be able to create folders I could use to help organize my paths. This happens on rare occasions but I thought may be a helpful feature down the road.

To manage all of your paths in a complex composing it would be very helpful if you could group paths just how you can group layers.
I think this small feature would improve the workflow with paths a lot and I hope to see this in the next update.

Sorry if I responded to this before my my original reply is not listed.  I, too, use many paths.  The suggested idea would be great if implemented.  I have made a work around.  After finishing a section of paths, I add them all together, correct any spots where there is no overlap, then create a new path from the combination.  I  am also now using multiple count groups with different colors which helps keep track what what combination paths are where in the project.  Joe
