Comment 4 Jiri Skrivanek 2008-11-14 08:59:19 UTC
Because I had fixed similar issue before, I tried it with java class template and it worked for me. Please, write down
really exact steps how to reproduce. Otherwise I tend to close it as "worksforme".
Comment 5 Mikhail Matveev 2008-11-28 19:08:38 UTC
It's still reproducible in the last development build.

1. Create a Java Application project.
2. Right-click Source Packages and select the New submenu. Behold that Java Class... menu item is available.
3. IDE main menu -> Tools -> Templates.
4. Select a template: Java -> Java Class.
5. Rename the template (press F2 and type some new name).
6. Close the dialog.
7. Create a Java Application project.
8. Right-click Source Packages and select the New submenu. Now Java Class... menu item is unavailable.
Comment 6 Jiri Skrivanek 2008-12-01 08:00:26 UTC
It is not surprise that if you rename "Java Class" template to something else there is no more "Java Class" in the
submenu. I tried your steps and when I renamed the Java Class template to, it is present in Java category in
the new file wizard. In the popup submenu are shown only priviledged templates and last used.
Comment 7 Mikhail Matveev 2008-12-01 13:39:56 UTC
In my opinion, if a template is "privileged", it should continue being privileged after renaming. It still does the
same, doesn't it?
Comment 8 Jiri Rechtacek 2008-12-04 15:22:33 UTC
fixed in core-main/rev/a678bf1ffb1b
Comment 9 Quality Engineering 2008-12-05 06:03:29 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200812050201* on (upload may still be in progress)
