Description alexismp 2005-07-05 13:33:34 UTC
From the "projects" or "files" tabs, I'd like to be able to easily create a new
directory by right-clicking and choosing "create a directory" on a given node.
Currently I need to go through a wizard starting from the root of the project.
Comment 1 alexismp 2005-07-05 13:37:19 UTC
Maybe the "File new..." command should be made available in contextual menus on
all nodes in the project...

Yes i was bitten by such issue myself several times, we shoudl consider for 7.0 IMHO.
Comment 3 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-10-30 22:22:30 UTC
Jano, what would you suggest?
Comment 4 jrojcek 2008-12-15 15:57:11 UTC
Maybe make the Folder template permanent in the "New >" contextual menu. The menu could go like this:

<MRU list>

That should work well for the Files tab and also non-java projects in Projects tab. For Java projects in Projects tab, the Package template should probably be 
shown instead of Folder.
