insert new chapter

Two novels in scrivener and now I’m having trouble inserting new chapters in the binder. Cmd-N doesn’t seem to cut it, just gives me a new folder. What do I do? I need to split up some existing chapters.

Cmd-N should add a new text file. Shift-cmd-N adds a new folder. To split a document, click in the text where you want to split it and hit cmd-K.
All the best,
