Export Selection List no longer organized by folder

Export -> Download GPX file.
The Export Selection dialog used to have the data organized by folder. Now it just lists all Markers in one group and all Shapes in one group.
At the same time that I noticed this change I also saw that "Download CalTopo Backup" is now labeled as Deprecated.
So maybe you are reworking Download and it's not a bug that the Export Selection list is no longer organized by folder; maybe that's deliberate. If so, OUCH -- his makes it extremely difficult to create separate gpx files for the different collections of waymarks in my CalTopo maps.

    There have been a lot of things that were reworked lately, mostly intended to be behind the scenes. The switch from GPX to GeoJSON for a full backup will be overall better as the GPX extension I used was custom while GeoJSON has wide support.

    That was accidental - I recruited a decent amount of testing help with this iteration and check/uncheck exports by folder all the time, but it's amazing what you're able to miss. I'll try to get it fixed asap.
