Allow sets of specific media and file types

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND

Allocate a more specific file type to each uploaded file. This new file type should allow us to create sets, filter and change the name of the file. This would allow me to create sets of all my pdfs with a specific tag (which I can add) in Anytype. PDFs are just an example. It could also be audio files or other types.

A good example is Capacities in this regard. They sort the file typed directly into a specific database (in our case this would be “type”) and show them on a single page.

HOW COULD IT BE DONE

Check for the file extensions and assign them to the specific type.

REAL WORLD USE CASES

Have all of the pdfs in one set which I can then tag etc. This allows me to easily find all the pdfs related to a certain topic.

RECOMMENDED ALTERNATIVES

Gather all the items on a single page. You can also create a set of file name relations and filter i.e. for the term “pdf” but this is just a workaround.
