Favorite collections could be useful to display collections I am currently working with on top of all the other (old) ones.

Generally ‘Favorite’ function requires manage itself. the better way i think is use MRU(most recent used) in collection list.

Thanks for your input, Yann. I've changed your post to an idea so it counts as a feature request and others can vote on it.

In the meantime you could put an asterisk * in front of the collection names your currently working on and they will appear at the top of the list. When they are no longer "current" you could simply delete the * and they will be sorted normally.

I hope that helps.

Thanks. I usually put a double zero at the beginning of the collection name :)

I use "!" which also works -- but that doesnt solve the awkward worklow of adding a photo.  You still have to navigate back and forth between the folder list and collection list.

Hello, it would be time to add the same functions to define the Favorite Collections as those to define the Favorite Folders!

LR Classic v7.5 (seen on the macOS edition, I do not know the Windows version). Today, we can declare a folder as a favorite folder simply by right-clicking on its name, we can select simplently all the folders declared as favorites in the folder selection field, which has the effect of displaying only the favorite folders, which is very handy for limiting the folder list length if you select All!

So pleaze. implement these same functions for collections that also tend to multiply over the course of work. And at the same time implement the fact of defining labels to the collections.

Bonjour, il serait temps d'ajouter les mêmes fonctions pour définir les Collections favorites que celles permettant de définir les Dossiers favoris !

LR Classic v7.5 (vu sur l'édition macOS, je ne connais pas la version Windows). Aujourd’hui, nous pouvons déclaré un dossier comme dossier favori simplement par un clic droit sur sont nom, nous pouvons sélectionner simplent tous les dossiers déclarés comme favoris dans le champ de sélection des dossiers, ce qui a comme effet de n'afficher que les dossiers favoris, ce qui est très pratique pour en limiter la longueur de liste des dossiers si on sélectionne Tous !

Alors s.v.p. implanter ces même fonctions pour les collections qui ont aussi tendance à se multiplier au fil du travail. Et par la même occasion implantez aussi le fait de définir des labels aux collections.

I would like to add to this idea: enable adding to favorite collections through right click on photo.

At present, if I am viewing a photo in a folder, I have to options to add to a collection.  Drag the image to the collection (difficult when target collection is hidden or if there are many collections open) or to navigate to the collection, make it a target collection then navigate back to the photo and add it to the collection.  Awful workflow.

If I can add to a favorite collection, I just right-click the photo, select the collection and I'm done.

This approach would, in effect, be allowing multiple target collections.
