Paint 2 for folders

Folder Factory is Paint 2 In every way except I can’t find a way to save the new folder as a copy to use again if I need more than one.
Please put together a manual for those of us that stumble around in search of an answer. The time spent guessing and redoing is debilitating.
If you are going to go through the process of creating such a nice propgram take a few more days and write down how it works. please.
That said. It is a good program, not as easy as you make it sound but it is cool. Thanks

Loved his app. but last 2 updates broke it.

I have used this for a long time. its one of my favorites. but since Version 5.7.4 it willno tstay open. i cannot use it at all. i will keep updating when there is update in hopes that it will get fixed. but I might be looking for an alternative.
