Where to put libraries

If I follow the instructions in http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Environment ... libraries:
"create a directory called libraries within your sketchbook directory"

When I open my sketch and attempt to import a library, it is does not appear in the list of libraries which I can import.

If I place the libraries directory inside the arduino-0018 directory (where arduino.exe is located) the libraries are presented and can be imported.

Do I need to change s setting to tell arduino to find the library under my current sketch directory?

Just a thought:
Try putting a capital letter for the L.

Libraries work for me, and I am using a capital letter.

I just put my libraries in the libraries folder in the arduino folder.

I just put my libaries in the libaries folder in the arduino folder.

Same here, except I spell the folder libraries.

C:\Documents and Settings\Primary Windows User\My Documents\Arduino\libraries

8 Folders:

Button
DS1307
Flash
MsTimer2
Streaming
String
Tone
__MACOSX


0 Files:

I mean the folder called libraries in the folder the arduino IDE is in.

On new version of arduino, at least on a Mac, there is no folder, it is all packaged into a .app file.

at least on a Mac, there is no folder,

Oh yes there is it's in the documents folder.

That is incorrect information. From the Arduino getting started section:

There is a list of libraries in the reference. Some libraries are included with the Arduino software. Others can be downloaded from a variety of sources. To install these third-party libraries, create a directory called libraries within your sketchbook directory. Then unzip the library there. For example, to install the DateTime library, its files should be in the /libraries/DateTime sub-folder of your sketchbook folder.
