Media Browser Pane needs an Import button

There's probably a shortcut for this, but at the moment I go to the Media Browser, scroll to the bottom of my media to the tiny sliver of a blank space between the last file and the horizontal scroll bar, right click and select Import.

 

I've moused over the other buttons there and I can't seen another one just to import a file.

Just now I tried right-clicking around that pane to see where else brings up that right-click menu, and it's only the space above the "x of n items selected" text (to the right of the directory name) that also brings up this menu with the "Import" option. 

 

My suggestion is that after the last item in the media list, there should be a blank row, and in the column where the coloured box is for each file, put a + button there to be clicked on to bring up the options to create a new item or import a file.

That way, the vertical scroll will always scroll far enough to show the whole empty row with this + button at the start of it, and it'll be easier to find this function.

Your screenshot is showing the Project Window (PW) not the Media Browser.

For import, you double-click on an empty space in the PW or use Ctrl+I

To create empty space, just hold down ALT and click on an arrow: all folders will close.

But I am guessing you are using a laptop with little space all together.

Oh dang, you're right about there being a button if I widen the pane enough.

I'm using Premier on my widescreen monitor, but even then I prefer not having the PW pane that wide as it's very little of my attention through most of my projects. 

I guess my suggestion is probably moot, but could possibly still be used if they wanted to add a nice little feature.

Thanks for your help.
