When the Templates tab has focus (e.g. by clicking anywhere in the Templates tab area), the Flow Zone moves to the right-hand side of the Flow Config tool, indicating that it may now be used for template entity creation.
If the Flow Zone is in this location, one can create a template entity by dragging an icon from the Flow Zone onto the Templates tree.
An alternate method to create Folders, Template Folders, or Template Metrics is by right-clicking in the Templates tree and selecting the “New” option in the context menu.
Depending which template entity you right-clicked on, you will get different options in the "New" context menu:
- If you selected a Folder, you will get the option to create another Folder or a Template Folder
- If you selected a Template Folder, you will get the option to create another Template Folder or a Template Metric
- If you had not selected a template entity (i.e. you right-clicked in the whitespace or root of the Templates tree), you will only get the option to create a Folder
The new template entity will be a child to the entity that you right-clicked on or, in the case of right-clicking in the root, the Folder will be created at the top level of the Templates tree.
The above ruleset also applies when creating template entities using the Flow Zone.
