project modules disable button

In the configuration Project>Paths>Modules
It would be nice to have a disable button.

It can take a lot of time to set up a module, and sometimes one would rather just disable it, than loose all the information by deleting it.

The module is removed from your project, but the module definition file
remains. When you select "New Module", you can use the "Import existing
module". The field to select it will be enabled.

One note, you can type in the full path to the module file, but using the file chooser doesn't show you the .iml files.
I don't know if there is an issue in tracker for this or not.

Thanks for the above suggestion. I have now happily removed the module.

The issue would then just be to see if there is a way to make it more obvious that the module will not be lost when the - button is pressed.
A simple UI issue.

Now of course it is obvious to me. So I don't have a problem with the way it is anymore :)
