            Bug ID: 245376
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Importing settings should not import projects
           Product: apisupport
           Version: 8.0
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Priority: P3
         Component: Project
          Assignee: 

          Reporter: 

        QA Contact: 


The first time you run NB 8.0 it asks if you want to import setting from a
prior NB (presumably if there is one).  If the user selects "Yes", the system
not only imports settings, but it also imports _projects_.  This is a major
problem for several reasons as follows:

1.  It asked to import "settings" not "projects".  It should not do this 
unless
given permission.

2.  When it imports projects, NB automatically modifies several project files
to upgrade them to the new NB.  This renders the projects potentially unusable
with the old version of NB.

So, let's say you are using NB 7.3.1 and mostly happy with it.  You wish to
install NB 8.0 in order to do some testing of the new NB.  You are asked if 
you
want to import "settings".  You select "yes" because you want your editor
preferences set the same.  Without warning, NB 8.0 forces an upgrade of all of
your projects.

Perhaps the popup box that asks if you want to import settings should include 
a
checkbox that says "import projects too".

Thanks.
