Response to: RE: Custom Folder Names, Audio in JPGs?

Well, I haven't played with audio yet, but I did play with importing folders, and for the life of me I can't get it to work. The help file claims it will create the folder name, and if there are sub-folders, it will create those. There appears to be no other way to create sub-folders other than by importing (am I missing a UI feature somewhere)?

So I took my "2005" folder, which contains a single folder "01-06 - Winchester, MA - Snowman". Dragged and dropped it on the Library folder (and anywhere else I could think of). I get a temporary folder while it's importing, and then poof, the last sub-folder imported ends up in "Last Roll" and no new folders are created. Very strange.

Has anyone had any luck creating custom folder names, let alone hierarchical ones?

One nice thing (maybe this was in 4, but I don't remember it). If you delete everything in Last Roll (Command-Option-Delete) it promptly displays the previous Last Roll.
