Description ulfzibis 2005-06-02 20:23:21 UTC
In Help I find "Duplicate Project", but context menu "Duplicate Project..." (use
right mouse button) is only available on J2ME-Projects.

Also it would be nice to have "Rename Project".

I see no mention of "duplicate project" in help. But see issue #47230 for
rename, and issue #50147 for copy. No immediate plans to work on these things as
far as I know - just depends on developer availability.

Sure, this page applies to MIDP projects only - note the references to JADs etc.
Comment 5 ulfzibis 2005-06-03 16:02:11 UTC
My opinion:

Help system should *help* unexperienced users rather than *mislead* to confusion.

So I posted a new RFE Issue 59606.

In form you are right, but nevertheless I miss "Duplicate Project".

Do you agree to reclassify this Issue as 'Feature' ?
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2005-06-03 18:39:00 UTC
Re. the actual feature: again, see issue #50147, it is already filed.
Comment 7 ulfzibis 2007-11-23 23:32:38 UTC
"Duplicate Project" now is covered by "Copy Project"
