It is usually best to keep folder names short and without spaces.

Content Areas

Select a Content Area Position and a number of Content Areas to add, then click "Apply"
When using multiple Content Areas, you can move between them by using the Content Are dropdown, located just beneath the Layout icon in the upper left of the Content Editor.
Also , you can decide how much white space to have between Content Areas by using the pixel box located in the lower right of the Content Editor. Usually between 20 and 50 is good.
