Dragging a Folder

In the "Structure the Image Gallery" video Nick drags a folder to a darkened area on the Workspace, but there's no such area on my Workspace. Dragging doesn't work. How do I do this?

hi chris, do you use chrome or firefox, and did you launch a new workspace for this?

every workspace should have this structur tree. probably clearing the browser cache or switching to another browser might help.

I just tried it and it worked fine. It did tell me I'd need to use Chrome to drag and drop an entire directory. What browser are you using?

As others have said, it should pretty much just work. You can try clearing your cache and restarting your browser. Also, if you have NO dark area, in other words no side bar at all, then you may need to drag that out. place your mouse over the left edge of your editor window and see if it turns to a double arrow allowing you to click and drag to make the editing window smaller and exposing the dark sidebar area.

I had a dark area, just no box. I was using Firefox and am pretty sure that I restarted it, but perhaps not since it worked the next day.
