Hi Jeff, sorry but I think one of us doesn't understand the other.
Before I click the New Folder button, it *has already selected* the original folder the connection was in. The dialog doesn't give any option to *unselect* the parent folder for the new folder.
I see the same thing here (pre-selected folder). The possible workaround is:
-Create a new connection in the root (can be an existing one or just a "dummy" connection)
-Select "add to folder" from that connection (nothing is pre-selected in the folders list now)
- Create the new "root" folder
You guys are making me paranoid.
What do we mean by ROOT?
BY ROOT I assume you mean 1st level. HR and SYS folders are at the same level, they are both root level folders.
I create my first folder by adding the 3 HR connections to a new HR folder.
I then go to do the same with a new SYS folder - note nothing is selected in the 'Select Folder' dialog when I right-click on selected connections - add to folder
I click OK
I get this - 2 root level folders
By "root-level" I just mean anything that is NOT contained within a folder. ALL folders used to be "root-level folders". We can now have folders within folders, so now we can have folders that are NOT at the "root level".
Steps to reproduce:
1. Make sure ALL your connections are within a folder (you had some at the "root" level, now in your example you have put all your connections in the HR or SYS folders).
2. Right-click any connection, e.g. "hr1". Click "Add to Folder". The "Choose Folder" dialog comes up.
The "HR" folder will already be selected for you.
You cannot unselect it.
If you click the "New Folder" icon, it will create the new folder WITHIN the HR folder.
After you have created the new folder, you can drag and drop it to another folder - but you CANNOT move it to the "Connections" node to make it a root-level folder.
I hope this is clearer.
