First let me say that I really really really appreciate the addition of Folders and Search for Layers in Archicad 26, but do not stop there. Please please please also provide us with folders for all of the Attributes, Graphic Overrides and especially for the Graphic Override Criteria. I use the heck out of Graphic Overrides and the Tyranny of Alphabetical Ordering is driving me crazy.
It is nuts not being able to organize all of this into folders.

If they can allow for attributes to belong in more than one folder, then that will be truly useful.
Like layers in layer combinations - one layer can belong in multiple combinations.
It would be no different (?) than a file shortcut / alias / soft link in folders in MacOS or Windows ... or clones in the View Map? Would not be re-inventing anything that hasn't existed with folder management for 35 years, so a bit astonishing that they just didn't do that ... with full folder implementation everywhere.

The ability for one attribute to belong to multiple folders makes little sense if folders are meant to be a way to manage attributes. So If they do that then they have to reconceptualize it from folders to tags and/or from management to organisation. Or actually just rename it seeing as that is what they actually implemented.
The cloned folders in the view map are to my knowledge the only ones that function properly in terms of management - propagating its settings to its content. Although the interface is lacking a indication for which settings are propagated and which are overridden at item level. It is also strange that ordinary folders in the view map lacks this functionality.
