How?
The IDE only allows to create new src files when a project is created and active.
(at least I haven't figured it out yet)

Also IMO it would be an improvement when a new Project is created also new diirectory for this project would be created automatically (with the same name). Otherwise every time I create a new project I have to choose a different location for the main project directory and make a new directory by hand. If I don't do that the Aurora IDE places all projects in the same directory.

This could be accomplished in the same way the name of the exe file is placed into the dialog (while typing the project name).

Also why is the awp project file a binary file?
An ascii file as a project file would be more efficient because if something breaks the project files can be modified by hand.

Doesn't it work like EBasic.
Open the file you want to add to the project.
Right click in that files window and select add to project from the context menu.

Also, I just open Aurora and there is all the add file to project menu item inder the "Project" menu.

Yes just right click in the window.   Or click on the project menu.

Nope.  I prefer to name my own directories, thank you.  I hate when an IDE chooses names for me.

Because it is much more efficient and quicker to read than parsing an ascii file.  Especially when you have thousands of source files like some of my projects do.  If you are so worried then make backups, the #1 rule of computers ;)
