New UI for "New Project"

The new UI for "New Project" is not at all intuitive.  E.g. how do you create a project over existing sources? Either plain Java project, or Maven project?

Its really not clear and the UI needs some serious work.

Totally agree. I do not see a reason to have separate place for Import project and New project, when it is basically the same thing - creating new IntelliJ project.

The icons have disappeared too making it look very dull.

The difference is that in "Import" case, you have something that already
exists. So, workflow is different: first, you need to locate what you want
to import; than IDEA can decide how to handle it. E.g. if you select
existing .iml file, no wizard is required to import it into the project.
P.S. The new "Import" options were moved next to "New" ones, to make them
more discoverable.

Do not agree, you have to select the target in both cases, so there could be node with imports in the New project dialog.  The wizard is different for different types of modules anyway.
