Eclipse integration : feature request

Currently you can open a .project as an IDEA project.

But my understanding is that an eclipse project is like an IDEA module, and an eclipse Workspace as an IDEA project.
THing is you currently can't import several eclipse projects in the same IDEA project.

Would it be possible to be able to add a module from an eclipse project ? or should we use Eclispe workspace importer ? I figured this would become obsolete

Hello Thibaut,

The UI is a bit confusing now: call New Project Wizard, select Import from
external model, and on next page check Import into current project On.

Yes, i used it, but what if you want to add some new Eclipse projects (as idea modules) to an existing IDEA project ?

Hello Thibaut,

Doesn't New project wizard work for this case? Open existing IDEA project.
Call New project wizard, select "external model", eclipse, and set Import
into current project = true. I've just imported an eclipse project as a module
to existent IDEA project, using this way.

Guess I missed that checkbox, just tried it again and it is indeed there.

But from an ease of use perspective I don't find it intuitive to go to New Project when you just want to add a new module.

Thanks for the insight I'll be using this for the time being :)
