another 'newbe' question

dpa
Sorry for asking this simple question, but whenever I used something from the Library folder it never worked and I ended up by copying all I needed into the same folder or into my scad file directly to get it to work.

Now, in order to get the threadlib to work I checked once again. I tried to show something from "list-comprehension-demos" what uses scad-utils. I have 'scad-utils' installed (to confirm, I opened this folder safely through OpenSCAD's menu 'File/Show Library Folder...') and it's all there. But the opened scad doesn't find it.

I made this little movie to show the problem.
Can someone tell me what is the problem here?

Sorry, nothing comes to mind. You could check the paths in
Help/show-library-info, but as it is opening that path it must be
there.Maybe some clue here

Why is there a cloud icon behind the file? Is that some
kind of remote folder and the file is not actually there?

ciao,
  Torsten.

Yes! In fact this was the reason! 
I use iCloud for Documents (I think this is standard) where OpenScad/libraries is part of. Everything 'is there' but (showing the cloud-) only on demand. When OpenSCAD asks for anything it doesn't download it (what I would expect from a smart iCloud/finder) so it keeps unknown. Now I downloaded everything and it works!
 
ciao,
  Torsten.
 
Thank you for your open eyes, Torsten!
