Re: Checkout path.

I hadn't noticed the folder creation popup.

The project layout is unfortunately not changeable and projects aren't
the same way the workspace is, due to includes and other infrastructure

But that ain't a problem anymore, as I think I can manage to do what I want
using the
popup, it creates the subfolder and does not version the current one, just
as svn command does.

Creating the subfolder automatically though, would have been a nice way of
the user to select multiple folders from the repository, to checkout in the
current folder (as a new, later feature),
thus really taking advantage of the GUI.

Thank you again for your help.
