So I got upgraded to the newest theme in Google Docs (where all of the items are in the center pane). I really like the folders, and I have had some setup before these improvements were added. Now, I can't find the New Folder menu option under the Actions button anymore.

How can I create a new folder in Google Docs?

The folders are now known as 'Collections' and can be created by clicking on the 'Create New' dropdown and then selecting 'Collection'.

More information is in Create a collection (Google Docs Help).
