I realize you are not responsible for this software but thought maybe you might have some insights on how to fix this problem if you've seen it before.


I just created a new project with NetBeans "child-theme-lessons" but when I right click on Source Files I CANNOT create a sub folder.  I can create files only.    I've been using computers for 20 years and still cannot get it to create a folder.   Maybe It's a bug, maybe I installed NetBeans wrong,  I cannot seem to find any help on NetBeans support as of yet.


Ok, I used a workaround.  I created folders inside the project folder by just using Windows OS.  And those folders do show up on the Project Folder hierarchy in NetBeans so that's good.  Would be nice to be able to do it from within NetBeans but I guess it's not the end of the world but it is the principle of the thing.  Like what kinda program doesn't allow you to create a folder within a folder!

I uninstalled NetBeans 7.2 then re-installed just using the PHP option and still no luck on being able to create folders within a project within NetBeans.

Jim, I'm lost on that as well.  For as long as I've been using Netbeans I just right click inside the project folder, select new >> folder.

You might look in the Netbeans forums.  I've found that to be useful in the past.
