If I do ctrl-click->add->new files.. on a folder, it will bring a different dialog than if I select that folder and do cmd-n.
This inconsistency is confusing and makes keyboard shortcuts less helpfull.
Command-N is a global setting and it brings up the "New File" and will apply to the whole solution, while right-clicking on the folder is a local add-new-file.
IMO this is a valid usability issue.
In mine, it is not.
Folks, can we tone it down? Thanks.
I agree with Miguel's argument, but at the same time I feel it only lead to shortcomings.
The reason I did right-click->add is because "New File" is painful. A contextful variant would
be much welcome.
The thing that bothers with "New file" is that it requires me to fill in folder names and have no clue
on what kind of file I want to add, would it contextualize those options based on my folder selection,
the pain would be gone.
For example, if i have the "Views" folder selected and it's full of xib files, it would be so sweet if i brought up the folder path filled and shown me first options to create other xib files.
