Pattern in new folder

135 Views, 2 Replies

If I place many parts  than i create a new folder in the browser and place all parts in the new folder.
If I make a pattern of the same part that pattern I can not drag to the new folder where all the other equal parts are.
Well, I can right click on the pattern and then add to new folder but I can not click on existing folders so get a new folder is created where the pattern is placed.
Is it not possible to have a pattern to an existing folder to drag?

You should be able to drag the pattern into the folder, but I believe it has to be under the LAST item in the folder.

Expand the folder and try dragging the pattern under the last item (you should see a LINE appear below the last item as you drag the pattern into position).

Thanks, you must exactly click the right place.

It must be done exactly.

Some times i go over the new folder and it turns blue and then it works to.

 

Thanks again.
