Nope, wrong :-)) 
Ok, I have to admit it's not easy to figure out compared to 1.4/2.0 so
this is the area again where I'll work on, usability and making a
power-IDE as simple as possible towards the user. What you need to do is
to start gideon, then select project-Import project directory and fill
out the dialog (selecting project type, language and directory). Then
use Project-open project and select the directory. The project component
will then open up your classes, files etc. It works, beleive me ;-) I
just need to find a good way to simplify the handling, so if someone
comes up with that I'd be thankful. I think at least directly loading
the project after using import project directory would help, but I may
be wrong and you guys come up with a much more usable way. Suggestions
welcome :-)  Please give it another try.


Finally, even I have to admit that being myself was the best thing
that ever could have happened to me. - Le Grand Charmeur
