[Geany] geany 0.18 project creation

Steve .
Hi,
I have an existing project base that includes hundreds of projects. Each project has numerous files. I've managed to get one of the smallest projects working with geany, but when i moved the project from a "work-in-progress" directory to a "working" directory and then attempted to open the project I found that geany did not open the files and it also seems to have deleted the contents of the project file(it lost the list of files used in the project).
Now I'm back at sqaure one trying to port my projects into geany. When i attempt to create a new project geany claims to have created the project file(via message in lower left corner that reads Project "test" created). But it is not to be found in the project base directory i have selected.
Using project / new  from the menu has a dialog that seems odd to me.
Name, Filename, Basepath.
Name and Filename seem to be of the same atm.
Can anyone shed any light on porting a project into geany or a general theory of how a project is created.

I tried 0.18.1 to find that the syntax highlighter files i created will not work so using the latest version is not likely atm.
thanks.

That sounds like a bug.
Could you provide a step-by-step instruction to reproduce the issue?

By default, Geany saves the project file itself a directory above the
project's base directory. However, you can change that in the
preferences dialog.

Name and filename are not the same. Name can be any arbitary text which
is used as the project name. The filename is the path to the project
file into which the project metadata is saved.

Not sure about what you are talking here. Could you go into more
detail? Thanks.

Enrico
