Copyboy questions - File to Article

Hope you guys don't mind posting this here ;-)

1. After importing a file using Copyboy specifying my desired target template, Citydesk displays the article template as (None).  The same happens using the "HTML to article" function.    Bug?

2. It seems Copyboy always creates articles in the root directory - is is possible to specify a target folder?

1. Sounds like a bug to me. I'll take a look.

2. Not in this release. I've added it to the feature list for a future release.

I don't mind CopyBoy questions here if Joel doesn't :)

Yes, it's a bug. There actually isn't any code to pay the slightest attention to what you select as a template when doing an import or convert. I'll fix this in 2.1. Until then, you'll need to set the template after importing the article. You can use the Bulk Edit Templates panel to make this a bit easier.
