I've used Eclipse for many years but egit is new to me. I can clone the relevant remote git repository, but I suspect I've gotten totally crosswise of the distinction between repository and project, and/or I don't know which buttons to press or boxes to check during the cloning process. I've started over from scratch several times and tried many combinations but I'm always left with a situation where my files show up only in the view "Git Repositories", not as a project. Attempts after the cloning to do an import give me messages that I can't import because it's already imported.

In particular, I have no way to search for strings in my files, because I can't find any way to set up a working set for searches through these files. Help?

Why don't you ask in the Eclipse eGit forum?
