Creating new project in M2

Well, as the best damn IDE period evolves further,
1. It asks me if i want to reformat my older project files (from 6.0), and warns that 6.0 won't be able to open the project after that. maybe it should create a new project file from the 6.0 files...
2. it's trying to be extra intelligent; it spent a while trying to find all the folders containing jars, and then gave them names like lib1, lib2, lib3. and it has selected all of them. there's no easy way to unselect all, and then select the ones that i need. i still feel like it's easier to just add the jars i want further down the line...
3. I must also have gone blind, because i can't see where to create a web module! used to be, in project settings, under project structure for the modules, i had tabs for web module settings, and Java EE build settings etc. now i don't see any of those. and i don't remember it giving me the option for creating a web module.
i'm sure it's there, but it's become harder to find it...

The new facet system may be puzzling at start, but it sure makes a lot of sense.
