Description jrojcek 2004-04-20 15:11:59 UTC
Few participants tried to put project folder of newly created 
project at the location of existing sources. They couldn't figure 
out why it didn't work.

Please specify some solution or improvement which I could implement.
Would the project file paradigm work?
Comment 2 jrojcek 2004-05-12 12:36:23 UTC
I did a few changes that might solve this issue.

* I did small rearrangements in the wizard panel layout of Java App and Java Lib. I also 
changed the wording in those panels.
* Created a special category "Projects with Existing Sources" that might lead users away 
from regular template if they need to use existing sources.

I guess all these changes are filed as separate issues.
Comment 3 Petr Hrebejk 2004-05-13 15:44:00 UTC
Both of the changes already implemented.
