Add New Facet

I wanted to add a new hibernate facet to my project so naturally I went to the Project settings, clicked on Facets, then clicked on Hibernate but the Add button gave the option to select modules to disable Hibernate detection!  ?:|

I decided to start a new project from scratch as I was fairly sure I had seen something about adding Facets in the new project wizard.
When I got to it, it was in the new module section.

This led me to try going back to my original project and into the modules settings.
Sure enough, under Add new module, there is a list of Facets that can be added to the current module.

Whilst that does make sense in some way, it isn't obvious and would be better off being in both places so that people have a better chance of finding it on their first go.

Currently facets can be added in 'Modules' section of the Project Settings dialog only. You can select a module and press '+' button to add a facet to
that module. However I agree that it's intuitively to create facets from 'Facets' section. Could you please create an issue in our tracker
(http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA)?
