Using Folders

Elucidat allows you to keep your Assets in Folders to keep everything tidy in your Asset Library.

By default your Asset Library will have a couple of Folders already set up:

All folders - any new Folders you create will sit within this.

No folder - this is where your Assets will automatically be organized until they have been added to a Folder.

Add an additional Folder

In the Folders panel in your Asset Library, right click where it says All folders and then select Create folder:
