To import files or a folder

Copy or move the appropriate file (or folder) into the desired media folder in your project (Figure 6.1).

2.
In the Browser, select a destination for your incoming file by doing one of the following:

  • To import files or folders into the top level of a project, click the project's Browser tab.

  • To import files into a bin within a project, double-click the bin to open it.

3.
Do one of the following:

  • Choose File > Import; then choose Files (or Folder) from the submenu, select the items, and click Open.

  • In the Browser or any Browser bin window, Control-click and then choose Import File (or Import Folder) from the shortcut menu.

  • Drag the desired files or folders directly from your Desktop (Figure 6.2) to a project tab or a bin within the Browser (Figure 6.3).
