How to Move Fills Between Folders

Josh Verran
Expert

I've been working with Archicad 27 and recently started organizing my project resources into folders, including fills.

 

However, I made an accidental move and placed some fills into the wrong folder.
Now, I'm trying to figure out how to move them back out to the main fills section, but I can't seem to do it.

 

When I select the fills and try to drag them out of the folder, I get an icon with a circle and a diagonal line, indicating that the move is not allowed.

 

Has anyone encountered this issue and found a solution?
I'd greatly appreciate any guidance or tips on how to correctly move fills between folders in Archicad 27.

Make sure you have the folder view active.

You should be able to just drag and drop to any folder.

Just make sure the mouse goes over the folder name - you should see a little rectangle under the mouse arrow.

A black line means it will go into the folder level above where you drop it.

And the circle with line means that move is not allowed (usually because it is already in that folder)

Thanks @Barry Kelly 

At some point, I had collapsed the folder section shown below and forgot there was an option to expand it again.
