Select Project Type - Adding new project type or modifying existing ones

Hello All,

As you know, when clicking on Add Project, you get a dialog that shows 6 pre-defined project types. I would like to know either:

1. Can I add my own project type?

2. Modify any of those existing ones?

Basically, I have my own set of schemes that I want to define as a project type. Either of the 2 will help me achieve that.

Best regards,

No, you can't change these.

If you were on the download version, then

1. You can write plugins that specify new project types

2. You can turn off existing ones by disabling the plugin modules

3. You could get the source and have a go at modifying the existing ones (easier to copy them, rename them and disable the old ones though)

But none of these can be done OnDemand.

Thanks for the answer, however much I don't like it.
