I'm looking for a way to clean up and organize some of my project folders. I'm wondering if it might be possible to have separate folders inside a max project folder (eg. one for sound files, colls, qlist, etc) and have the sub-directories that the main max patch is in be searched. That way, the sound files and text files I have organized in separate folders are able to be used properly instead of having everything in the same pathway as the main max patch.
Obviously I could add the directory in File Preferences. But, I'm hoping to build some sort of modular abstraction that will do this automatically so I can use it in multiple projects. I am sure this is possible, but I'm looking for some guidance as to where to start. Thanks for any help.
