Description Mike Krüger 2013-09-08 12:49:45 UTC
Use case: 

Create a file in a subdirectory of the current project.


Namespace is the base name every time.


Namespace should be like: <BaseName>.<DirName>

(I think that the GetDefaultNamespace method always returns <BaseName>)

This one is really annoying when new files are created.

There's a policy setting, you probably have it disabled?
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2013-09-08 14:59:31 UTC
I didn't disable it - I would say I haven't enable it ... what is the default setting for that ?

A little bug in the panel:

When I select linear namespace the preview shows


for the directory 'A' - inside the IDE the namespace generated is 'A'. (Either we need more complex options or the preview is wrong).

Works fine for me. Does you project perhaps have an empty default namespace value?
