When user click on File | New Project, user is 
invited to select a Project. Maybe it would be 
better to rename that first page of the wizard by 
select a Project's Category or somethink like

True, it is a bit odd if you look at it that way.
Comment 2 jrojcek 2004-09-17 16:30:42 UTC
I agree it is a bit weird. We haven't used the "template" or "type" terms intentionally and 
"category" doesn't seem to work either. In a full sentence it should look like this: "Choose 
what kind of project you want to create", but I really don't know how to shorten it better 
than "Choose Project", which isn't exactly the same.

As this doesn't cause any other problem than "seems a bit odd" I am closing as wontfix, 
unless we find a plausible fix for this.
