Netbeans when opening javaocr, modules are opened side by side, not inside a "category" or "group"

I want to have a tree-like group, which the top node is javaocr.
When I copied javaocr to my workspace, the fir plugins blah blah blah are opened side by side.
One after another.
I don't like that.
How do I change it back to better looking/organized?
Thanks
Jack

Could anyone shed some lights on this?
I will be very pleased to hear an answer.
Thanks

Even though I'm using NetBeans myself, I've no idea what are you talking about.

- What window or pane containing modules are you having difficulty with? Project? Files? Something else?
- What is javaocr (a link might be helpful) and how exactly did you copy it to your workspace?
- What are "fir plugins"?

Perhaps someone who's already using javaocr would be wiser than me. But I'm completely lost.

Martin,
When I click on "Open Project...", then select the root folder of javaocr, there are 5 different projects being setup,
While I want all of them to be contained in one Project.


Thanks

So you want to combine five different projects into one?

As far as I know, Netbeans doesn't have any function to do this automatically. At the same time, this is not a simple configuration change - each of the five project has it's own build script and you'd have to merge them together somehow. For simple cases (such as four library projects and one master project) just merging the source directories of the library project into the master project might work. It might complicate the process of updating the library to a newer version, though.

If you're concerned only about opening the projects, you might define a project group for the five disparate projects. That makes opening all of them at once easier. You might also open just the "topmost" project and choose Open required projects from the context menu of that project - if Netbeans can find them, it will open them automatically.
