Description jrojcek 2006-04-10 15:53:40 UTC
Participant creates a sample project and tries to create a new folder (probably a new source root). 
Created "Mock" folder using the new file wizard but he doesn't see the result in the Project window. He 
is confused because he found the folder in Win Explorer. Creates the folder again and is confused that 
he could do it even if it already existed. Finally finds out the source package properties and now 
understands how to add a source folder.

1 participant was confused and slowed down

Participant expected to see something like "New Source Folder" option in project's contextual menu. We 
might consider designing something like that.
