Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I wanted to write this down to clarify my own understanding. I'm using Sierra, but assume it is similar with Windows.
- Dragging a folder from the finder onto the plex does not by design import a folder or its contents. It does, however momentarily show the green plus sign which typically indicates a file is being added. I think this is a function of Sierra, not TB9. The plus sign goes away once TB9 has become the frontmost window. TB9 does not, otherwise, respond to this action.
- Importing an empty folder via the file menu creates a thought with the folder name. It does not delete the original folder.
- Importing folders containing only other folders (no files) creates thoughts with the same hierarchy as the folders. It does not delete the original folders. This is good for template creation.
- Importing folders containing files and other folders creates thoughts with the same hierarchy as the folders, plus adds files to appropriate thoughts as attachments. The files are not deleted from the original folders. This is not effected by preferences/UI/content settings.
I like the way this works now that I've tested and understand it.
