To add multiple applications, repeat steps 7 through 13.

For launchpads you have assigned the standard launchpad type to and would like to assign to an FPM application, we recommend that you not use a folder. This is because Floorplan Manager can currently only display one folder. If the launchpad consists of multiple folders, only the topmost folder is displayed.
