  1. Custom Libraries


    In the default libraries there is a 'new folder' option. in custom libraries there isn't. It seems I can only add already existing folders to a custom library. Is that correct?

    What I wanted to do:

    The default libraries are

    3D Objects
    Desktop
    DopucmentsDownloads
    Music
    Pictures
    Videos

    I wanted to add Movies. While I can create this custom library, I cannot create a new folder in this library, I can only add an already existing folder from, for example, the Documents folder.
