Description Milan Kubec 2004-05-26 09:56:51 UTC
User cannot access manifest file through project properties. All project properties can be accessed except manifest file that must be opened from Files view, which is not very convenient.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2004-05-26 16:24:13 UTC
IMHO this is WONTFIX. Manifest intentionally not included in the Projects tab. Anyway it is hardly true that this is the only file you cannot access in the Projects tab - why do you think we *have* a Files tab?
Comment 2 Milan Kubec 2004-05-26 22:10:59 UTC
This issue is not about accessing manifest from Project tab but from project properties dialog. User can set all project properties there including jar content and compression, but he cannot specify manifest. I know that you can access manifest in Files view, but you can access anything in Files view - you wouldn't need project properties at all taking it this way.
Comment 3 Milan Kubec 2004-05-27 08:30:49 UTC
User should be able to pick any file as manifest file anywhere in the project by filechooser.

Makes sense to me as an enhancement.
