Templates management UI

Hello,

Recently I've spent some time trying to reorganize the live templates I already
have and found the UI somewhat strange.

Why pressing 'Create Folder' or 'Create Template' button raises another dialog?
Why can't Resharper just use the currently selected folder?

Another strange thing. I press 'Create Template' button. Then becomes the
'Choose Destination Folder' dialog where I can... create more folders?? This
seems to be pretty confusing.

And moreover, if I create a folder in that 'Choose Destination Folder' dialog
and then press OK, another dialog is raised. But if I dismiss it by pressing
'Cancel', the newly created folder does not appear in the main list. However
it is still visible in 'Choose Destination Folder' dialog. Looks like a bug.

How can I rename a folder? It is created with the default 'New Folder' name
and I failed to change it.

Multiple folders with the same name can be created. Now really good...

I would rather expect to have a context menu assigned to the items in the
tree view. This would give (from my point of view) much simpler UI.

Regards,
Maxim.

You can rename the newly added folder by selecting it and then hitting F2
(not crazy about that either).
