For the life of me, I wasn't able to figure out how to create a doc inside a Collection.

When I click the Create button, the document is always created at the root level, and I have to find the collection again and drag it to it.

Is there a way to create the doc inside the collection?


Use the down-arrow menu next to the collection. Choose "Create" and then choose the document type.

  • That's the reason I love all the StackExchange sites - always learning something new! I have actually been thinking about this exact problem for some time now and I have even used the arrow but never noticed the "Create..." item :P – benregn Jan 18 '12 at 20:00
