Folder Hierarchy - Android App

Explorer | Level 4

Hi There.

I am thinking about making the switch from Evernote to Paper but have a concern about the Android application, regarding folders.

When I go to the Folder view in the app, all folders are shown, including subfolders. Is there a way to only show folders at the directory level I am currently at?

The Android app differs from how folders are displayed on the web interface. If I click folders on the web, I see the real hierarchy of the folders. Subfolders aren't displayed until I click on a folder containing them.

Thanks in advance!
