Just upgraded PF to version 6. My compliments for this release! It looks great.
After the upgrade from FP5 to 6 I lost my custom Sidebars. So I had to add and customize the sidebars again. It looks like there is a limit to the number (18?) of items I can add to the places section in a Sidebar. I want to add more items to the sidebar, witch used to be possible in FP5. Can you fix this?

    Sidebar got a lot more complicated in PF6: it comes in two flavors:

    1. Original
    2. Left drawer (limited features)

    Try the original: it solved my problem.

    That's not correct, attyinfo, there's only one real Sidebar. The Drawers and Preview Pane can host a number of different modules including the Sidebar (you can set anything else other than the Sidebar in your Left Drawer).

    Jan, after some testing, there's no limit on the number of items on the Sidebar but if you drag in multiple folders, it will only add the first 5 selected folders, at a time.
