Description bdrx 2014-11-05 05:57:33 UTC
The 'Add JAR/Folder' dialog has a 'Look in' combobox for selecting the directory containing the jar to select. Make this combobox editable with tab completion to allow easier selection of the directory/jar.

Ideally the absolute path of a jar could be pasted into the combobox and the jar would be selected in the file browser box directly below it and added to the 'File name:' inputbox.  A user could then easily select Relative Path, Copy to Libraries Folder, or Absolute Path from the radio button selections on the right side of the dialog.
