Description jrojcek 2008-10-30 14:56:57 UTC
Currently to create a New File, the user needs to go through the template selection step, which is slow. In many cases it would be enough to type a file 
extension into a name field and NetBeans should determine what kind of file it is. E.g. typing "" clearly means the user wants to create a Java file. 
Similarly "index.html" means an html file.

See the original problem description written by Pavel Buzek:

I would suggest a slightly different approach for solution. See the attached screenshot.
