Let us navigate the folder hierarchy when selecting a template.  Let us browse outside the data directory.  At a very minimum, even without a hiearcichal view, let us display titles, template names, filenames and dates, and sort on any of them!  Let us filter by type (NTF, master template, and even NSF -- why not let us replace design of one NSF from another, even without the master template attribute being checked?).  Let us search!!
And ok.... It's fine by me if they make this an "advanced" view in order to not confuse people who really love the flat double list (alphabetical list of NTFs that aren't master templates, followed by the alphabetical list of master templates).

I think the whole mechanism of doing replace/refresh design and by extension identifying where "templates" are (even on different servers or Local) and what they're called and whether they are duplicates and whether they contain any design element level template inheritance needs a fresh rethink. This headache is just one small piece.

If the replace/refresh server setting design dialogs could default to the last server selected rather than 'Local' that would save lots of mouse clicks when updating a bunch of databases at the same time.

Missed this idea when posted...I have found in ND8 that it will scan and show templates regardless of where they are on the system...even across file systems on the same physical server. So in essence, it solves the problem of looking through multiple directories.

Ideally, this is quite different than what is proposed, but for now, it might suffice.
