Description Milan Kubec 2004-05-26 09:56:51 UTC
User cannot access manifest file through project
properties. All project properties can be accessed
except manifest file that must be opened from
Files view, which is not very convenient.
Comment 1 Jesse Glick 2004-05-26 16:24:13 UTC
IMHO this is WONTFIX. Manifest intentionally not included in the
Projects tab. Anyway it is hardly true that this is the only file you
cannot access in the Projects tab - why do you think we *have* a Files
Comment 2 Milan Kubec 2004-05-26 22:10:59 UTC
This issue is not about accessing manifest from Project tab but from
project properties dialog. User can set all project properties there
including jar content and compression, but he cannot specify manifest.
I know that you can access manifest in Files view, but you can access
anything in Files view - you wouldn't need project properties at all
taking it this way.
Comment 3 Milan Kubec 2004-05-27 08:30:49 UTC
User should be able to pick any file as manifest file anywhere in the
project by filechooser.

Makes sense to me as an enhancement.
