Has the same problem with 12.10, tried dragging the directory i wanted to bookmark and it didn't work, until i read the help and found out that to add a folder as a book mark all you had to do is to open the folder/directory and click on the bookmark menu and then add bookmark.


Is the shortcut key for performing the same task.
