Move existing folder into new folder in DSM

I just created a new folder in DSM, and I want to move some existing folders into it. How do I do this? 

I want to move 'Buttons', 'Pagination', etc. into 'Components'.

I am in shock that this and other simple features are not available. I was pushing DSM in my org but can't really anymore without such basic, expected features.

Hi William,

I apologize for the inconvenience that this is causing for you. I notice that you have already opened a ticket with our Support team regarding this issue, and I have notified them of your comment here in Community as well. Please look for a message from our Support team soon.

That being said, you should have the ability to moves colors between folders, re-order folders, and move component folders between top-level folders. As mentioned in our "Walkthrough of the UI for DSM" Help Article: 
| "You can add content to existing categories, or create a new folder by clicking Add Folder. You can also click and drag to reorder folders or move items from one folder to another."

In the DSM plugin, you can click the more button (•••) next to the palette name and switch to manual sort. After doing so, you can drag and drop colors to different folders as seen here.

Hope this helps!

Agree with William, I am trying to do this now and have reached a hurdle. Invision should be aware that creating something as complex as a design system is a working progress, that is ever changing. The fact this feature is not included is quite shocking as it makes it harder to manage DSM. We are currently trying to get on board with DSM also, however this is proving to be too basic for our needs.
