Re: Checkout path.

Hi,

I hadn't noticed the folder creation popup.

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

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
enabling
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.

--Peter.
