The project tool in Wing 2.x wasn't designed to be a file manager, which 
we've since learned that many people want it to be.  We will be adding 
more file management functions to future versions of Wing.  I know this 
doesn't answer your specific issues, but it might be useful to keep this 
in mind.

be starting in the folder that you right clicked on unless you've 
changed your Default Directory Policy preference.  You can also use Add 
New File from the project menu to specify a name for new file to be 
created and added to the project.

Could you submit a bug report from within Wing, using Submit Bug Report 
from the Help menu?  We'd like to fix the problem that you're running into.

In summary, we are working on improving the project manager so it better 
detects file system changes and has more functions that act on the

We are also working on improving the Python shell, with autocompletion 
and other features.

Thank you for your feedback,
