Create a new folder and add files in one step?

While importing research for a legal brief I'm writing, I came across a feature that would speed up my use of Scrivener.

Re: The law

Thanks - and yes, I'd love it if you felt like doing something like that. Be glad to. I'll keep an eye on how things evolve as I do this brief, and then write something up.

Re: Techniques for getting from a concept to an outline / a plot

For managing the flood of ideas: I carry around a Moleskine notebook into which I dump ideas, scraps of ideas, overheard snippets of conversation, etc. One a month or so, or when I need a flash of inspiration, I'll troll through it and see what I find.
