Description Eduardo.m Costa 2008-08-13 14:56:44 UTC
When I want to add a new jar to my project (usually legacy code), the "add file/folder" starts in my home folder ("My
Documents" under Windows). IMHO, the correct behaviour is to start in the project folder.
Comment 1 Tomas Zezula 2008-08-14 13:00:17 UTC
Not exactly.
The add jar/folder starts in the last used place (where you last time selected the jar).
When you choose the jar|folder for first time it starts in your home folder, this can be changed into the project dir, but I am not sure if it's desirable or not.
Adding ui expert to cc list.  Jano, what do you think about this change?

To me the project folder makes more sense as libraries are likely located inside the project folder.
