library screenshots

I have been teaching how to use netbeans libraries (aka ant libraries).
The ant library manager pops up and everything is fine.

Now I want to use the same library in a java fx project, and is seems that netbeans (or the project configuration) insists on the project as the place to store the library jar files.
This is confusing at best, in particular because when you try to resolve the project problems and when selecting resolve, the same ant library manager pops up, appearing to be empty, and the global libraries are not selectable.

As it stands this defeats the purpose of the library concept, defining a reusable set of files, INdependent of a project, FX or not.
