Error importing files ("Cannot import files from within current project")

This is likely something very simple that I’ll smack myself for not realizing, but please help a newbie out.

Every time I try to import a file into my “Research” folder, I get a message saying “Cannot import files from within current project. The set of files being imported contain files that are within the current project folder. These files will not be imported.” I tried importing three different photos and a PDF. Same message every time.

What am I doing wrong?!

The message says that you already have the files within your .scriv project folder, so they are technically already within your project.

Thank you for this info, I was going mad
