    "Make Folder" directly inside a folder

    I often end up with several layers of folders - for instance I can have a folder called "Rushes 14th July" and have a "Camera A" and "Camera B" folders inside it, each containing an audio bin and a video bin.

    As the project grows bigger, it's frustrating to create a new folder, then have to find it, then drag it to where it belongs from the root of the project. Could we have a shortcut to create a folder wherever we want, say from a right click on an existing folder?

    I know I can do it from the Finder too, but it beats the whole logic of Media Composer where you do everything from within the app.

    This annoys me too! 

    Also not being able to empty the trash by right clicking the Trash bin doesn't make any sense.

    Yeah, this part of the interface is sooooo 90's, when Avid was a Mac only software.

    Don't forget Macs had no right-click on the mouse then. When right-click made it to the Mac, clearly Avid had no idea what to do with it and just put a "What's this" menu because if felt better than having nothing at all!
