Change Public Files to Private Files

Is it possible to change a document that is public to a private document?

    If you hit the 'Share' button in your document, you can make the document private by hitting the 'x' next to the 'All Onshape users' line item.

    I tried to do this with my file, but I don't have the option to "X" out "all Onshape Users."  There is no "X" next to that option, so there is no way for me to be able to make my file, private.  Please help!

    @evan_morris, unfortunately, only pro/paid users have access to private documents.

    It appears that "sharing" privileges can only be set at the document-level.  How do I change the privileges for an an entire folder (including all subfolders and documents therein) at once?

    You can only set share permission on the root folder
