It created no subfolders. In fact I had to create a subfolder
("Collected") or it would have saved everything in the same folder as
the original file. When I specified Collected/ it copied the .sla file
into it and the fonts, but not the graphics, nor is there any subfolder
within Collected/. 

When I first opened the .sla file in Collected/ the graphics were
missing and I posted about it here. Later I discovered (duh!) that the
graphics were not in Collected/, so naturally the graphics would not
appear when I opened the .sla file. I manually copied the graphics into
Collected/, and thereafter the graphics appear fine. 

I find it strange that it did not copy the graphics into Collected/. I
shouldn't have to copy the graphics into Collected/ manually; that is a
recipe for expensive mistakes. 

If it's supposed to copy the graphics into the subfolder then it
appears we are dealing with a bug here. If not, then we have a user
interface issue.
