I cannot create folders at the root /. Right clicking a folder lets me create a subdirectory and right clicking a top level file does not give an option to create a folder.

Looking through previously closed issues, it looks like one is supposed to be able to create top level folders by clicking in an empty white space. However, I have no empty white space as the window is filled with existing folders/files and has a scroll bar.

Suggestion: Create a new button to create a folder.

Thanks and awesome work.

Also got this problem. You simply cannot select the root directory by clicking on empty space in the password list.
Workaround is right clicking on the field.

This must be some sort of regression, as clicking empty space was supposed to select the root folder. Will have a look as soon as I can.

To clarify, clicking on the empty space works. The problem arises if there
is no empty space due to the amount of entries in the list.

I don't see that it works regardless of whether there's empty space or not.

Perhaps "empty space" was a bit ambiguous @bmiddleb

Right mouse button in empty spot in tree view:

Select top option:

If there is not enough empty space in te tree view for a right click, a simple solution is "searching" for some gibberish in the search box above the tree view.
Selecting empty space de-selects any folder you might have had selected previously.

I had to find this issue to see how to create a dir at the top level. I suggest adding .password_store or the root directory in the tree. This way it would be very intuitive how to select the top folder and add a new child.

Should be solved by #220

I'm on 1.1.6 on Kubuntu 17.04. Still can't deselect folders in the tree view by left clicking on whitespace. Oddly, right clicking deselects (in addition to bring up the menu option that works).
