P: Convert Lightroom Classic Collection Sets to Folders in Lightroom Web and Lightroom Desktop

When Folders and Albums in the Adobe Cloud are synced to Lightroom Classic (LrC), LrC converts the Folders to Collection Sets and the Albums to Collections, and places them under a top-level Collection Set called "From Lightroom."


However, the system does not do the reverse. If you create Collection Sets and Collections in LrC, and then sync them to the Adobe Cloud, Lightroom Web (LrW) and Lightroom Desktop (LrD) ignore the Collection Sets and it converts only the Collections. The result is a long list of albums in LrW and LrD without any folders. To me/for me, the system is creating a mess in LrW and LrD as I now have one set of Folders and Albums that were created in LrD and a whole lot of albums that were created in LrC. How are you supposed to quickly find anything?


Please change this so you can sync Collection Sets in LrC with Folders in LrW and LrD.
