I assume you mean as CC have a '06-Gases' folder in your course, which
you can create a 'Molar Volume' subfolder in, then import resources
from /res/monroe/... into this sub-folder.

I can recreate this. I filed it as

I assume you mean 'parameter' not 'assessment'

I had no problem with this (in my test course I have 'Upper Folder',
inside of it is 'Lower Folder' inside of that is some problems)

Main Menu -> PARM -> Set/Modify Resource Parameters - Table Mode

I change the 'Select Enclosing Map or Folder' to 'Lower Folder'

Click 'Update Parameter Display'

I Changed to entry 'Maximum Number of Tries (maxtries)' to 145 and

I then navigate to the problem and it is showing 145 tries available.

Can you tell me what you did different from this?

It should leave out the bottom one (and my test shows this to be true)

Again with the test setup of 'Upper Folder', inside of it is 'Lower
Folder' inside of that is some problems, The folder 'Lower Folder' is
not shown in NAV view.

(This is a design feature for when one need to have holding folders
for things like setting hidden or randomly select and don't want them
to clutter up the course structure.)
