Is there a shorter way to get to the project->module-> dependencies tab?

Is there a shorter way to get to the project->module-> dependencies tab for adding jars and classpaths? It's really killing me that you have to click so many times.

After struggling a bit with the new UI in 6.X I see how to do this but is there an easier way? If you are setting up a project and are adding half a dozen jars / classpaths this is super annoying.

This is a key feature and is practically buried now. Is there a way to set up a keyboard shortcut to get here?

Overall I love IDEA, but this is my #1 annoyance.

Thanks!!!

Yes, for many interactions, in 6.0. Instead of manually setting dependencies on modules and project/global directories, 6.0 allows you the capability of declaring dependencies "by intention". Just type a class name in the editor, and if there exists a class of that name in the project but which has no appropriate dependency created, IDEA will offer an intention to create that module or library dependency. Play it right, and once you've set up project libraries you never actually need to go to the project settings tab as your project evolves. Very slick.
