Add folder structure dialog

The Add folder structure dialog consists of the Source files area for browsing for the folder and its subfolders you want to import all documents with supported extensions, theExport path area for specifying the export path rule for these documents, and a series of buttons. You have to fill in both areas to start importing the files at once.
