Create Folder/Directory


I'm running Workbench 12.1 on OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). I can't right click in the file tree, so I currently don't have a way to create new project folders. I have the correct permissions, because when I log in my Windows 8.1 VM, I can run the workbench from there and right click just fine.

Does anyone know what I can do/change to be able to create new folders inside the Workbench running on OS X?

I searched the forums and couldn't find anything relevant, so sorry if this is a double post.

This seems to be a very specific issue that I can't seem to alleviate.

Thank you in advance for your help.

EDIT: Running Java 7 u67

    Hi Alexander

    May be a foolish thing to check but you did try right click in OSX using 2 fingers.

    I ran into this as well a while back. I looked around and I think it may be becuase OS X expects a single button mouse so you have to handle the event as a control click in your java code. Anyway the way I got around it is that you can copy and paste a folder and then rename it using the options on the menu bar.
