Create subfolder

Sometimes we may need to create a hierarchical relationship for classifications, Eagle supports hierarchical folders. Let's see how to do this, first, right-click on a folder and select "Create Subfolder".

If we want to add a folder which is created to be a subfolder. It's easy, just drag and drop the folder to the location where you want to place.
