|Undoing project import! [message #261538]

All I want to do is detach an imported folder from my project.|
Reverse import -> General -> File System
Why can't I just right click node and do a remove from project explorer!

How difficult can it be. Can't find anything in help. Maybe I don't know

I agree with Ed - "Import" always means "copy" and not "link" in my
