Description glarson 2014-12-06 20:33:51 UTC
Some groups have a specific folder associated with them.  When I switch to such a group, it does not change the current directory (the directory for new projects).  But for user-friendliness, it should.  After switching groups, when I try to create a new project, by default it is wanting to put it in the folder associated with my previously-opened project, not the group folder.  In my experience, I always want to put a new project into the current group folder, so I have to manually change the project folder to match the group folder.  The correct folder may not be in my memory, so I have to cancel my project creation just to inspect group properties to find out where its folder is.  This behavior doesn't make much sense for groups associated with a specific folder.
