Description Petr Jiricka 2014-09-19 20:57:57 UTC
1. The New HTML5 Application wizard asks me to specify Project Name and Project Location. 
2. When I enter these, Project Folder is automatically determined by Project Name, and it is not possible to override this.

It would be useful if I was able to specify a project folder independently. In my case, I want to have a generic name of a project folder, like 'client', but I would like to have a more descriptive project (display) name, like "AffableBean Client". Right now this is not possible using the New HTML5 App wizard.

The workaround is to create the project using the New HTML5 Application with existing sources wizard, which allows me to specify the project directory (client) as well as the project name (AffableBean Client).
