I am totally new to Eclipse as a development platform.
I am having a little difficulty with setting up a project and was hoping
someone could help.
I am on OS X Tiger and will be using Eclipse for Flash development.
I have already installed MTASC and ASDT and FlashOut and have created my
first "HelloWorld" swf.
I have set my "Workspace" as :
I organise my work in this manner:
and so on.
But when I want to create a new project inside one of my existing client
folders Eclipse shows a warning and displays:
"Projects contents cannot be inside workspace directory"
Is this a bug on Mac or could someone explain if what I am doing is wrong?
I also have some other questions...but I'll ask one at a time :o)
Thanks in advance,

Assuming you're still looking for help;
What you need to do is create new projects with their files in a
non-default location. So, assuming you have a directory
/users/myusername/workspace as your Eclipse workspace, with your sites
directory as it already is: /users/myusername/Sites/client1/project1
In your NEW workspace, you would *first* import your existing projects
(this does not move them) by using the Import tool (File->Import on
win/lin, no idea on Mac) and selecting "Existing Projects into Workspace"
This will get you to where you are now.
Then, when you create new projects, instead of "create new project in
workspace", you want to "create project from existing source" and give
as a directory the one you want to place it in (say,
/users/myusername/Sites/client1/newproject). You probably want to
browse to it, so you can create the new directory.
