How to create a project from a custom Maven Archetype?

I see there's this New Project -> From Scratch -> From Maven Archetype available in build #8995. However, it only lists a bunch of archetypes and doesn't list others I have installed in my repo. How can I call other archetypes then?

Thanks,
Andrew

Hmm, I found this plugins/maven/lib/archetype-common.jar!#archetype-catalog.xml file listing those. But the list is very small, and there's no way to call others. Looks very limited to say the least. Why can't a user just put groupId and artifactId? Additionally, need ability to feed properties into the archetype. Enhancement request?

For custom archetypes there is already a jira request, please watch http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-28717.
As for properties, please create a jira request.

Thanks,
