database and relative paths
#5
If you manage your own files, the named folder idea could certainly be used to accomplish that goal, but it wouldn't solve multiple other issues including:

1) Where do audio files go if imported from the cloud, as they have to be copied to the MobileSheets Storage location (hence having a separate location for audio is useful)..

2) If audio is restored from a backup on another device and the original location can't be recreated, where are the audio files placed? With an audio file storage location, there is a known location that the files can be copied to.

The named folder idea doesn't really capture the concept of a dedicated directory just for audio files - it's just another folder that is associated with MobileSheetsPro. In Windows 10, that concept could be quite useful if you like to manage our own files as you could specify another location that MobileSheets would be given continued access to (although it creates some annoying difficulties in the code with regards to how Microsoft handles file access).

So I think both ideas have merit for different reasons, but they ultimately solve different issues.
