Feature Request: Random Wallpapers Grouped By Random Folder

I'm currently evaluating 4.1.0 Beta 14, and looking to purchase, but there is one feature missing that I'm looking for.

I have hundreds of wallpapers organized into folders and sub-folders, like this (just a subset of what I have to illustrate):

    Wallpapers\Cars\Aston Martin
    Wallpapers\Cars\Ferrari
    Wallpapers\Cars\Lamborghini
    Wallpapers\Earth
    Wallpapers\Landscapes\Summer
    Wallpapers\Landscapes\Winter
    Wallpapers\Nature\Birds
    Wallpapers\Nature\Insects
    Wallpapers\Patterns
    Wallpapers\Space
    Wallpapers\Sunsets

I'm using the option to 'Randomly change using Images from my computer' Image Mode, combined with 'Use a different Image for each Monitor' Background Mode. I then add the folder Wallpapers for the source.

I have 3 monitors all configured the same. What happens is I get a mismatched set of photos. I might get a Ferrari on one monitor, a sunset on another monitor, and an insect on another monitor.

The feature I'm looking for is to have the randomization first randomly pick a folder, and use the same folder for all monitors, randomly selecting all images from the same folder.

That way I would have 3 images of Ferrari's displaying at once, then perhaps three space pictures, followed by 3 sunsets, etc.

This sounds like a relatively simple feature request. Will this be possible? Is this forum the proper channel for making feature requests?

Thanks,
Paul

Feature requests are definitely welcome in the Discussions! This is actually on our feature request list, but we haven't had a chance to look into it further yet. I'll add your information to the request, and if we're able to implement it in the future, I'll be sure to post an update.

Thanks!
