I'd like to understand the reason why the following happens: when I clone nSBT project from my remote repository, Idea will quickly identify it as SBT and open it in the corresponding way (colouring and formatting classes as necessary). In that setting, when I try to add a new Scala class to my package I won't be given the opportunity (the list of file types under New > when right-clicking will not include Scala Class -- although it will in clude Scala Script and Scala Worksheet).
On the other hand, if I clone the same project externally to Idea, and import it as an SBT file, in the same project I'll be given the opportunity to create a new Scala file.
The first (cloning from within Idea) would be my preferred choice, and I'd like to understand if there is anything I am missing and/or how to rectify the issue.
Thanks in advance.
