Something unintuitive about new file creation

So, it's been a while since I've started a new project.  I loaded the files into a folder on my media drive, then started Premier and clicked to start a new project.


The first thing I see is a display of clips from the wrong folder in the Import page. The first thing I saw was the breadcrumbs, so I drilled into my media folder, and all the files appeared, and I expected that to set the destination for the new project.  But then I looked up and "Project Location" was still set at the folder for the last project I was using.  Annoyed, I set that to the correct folder, gave the project a name, and then clicked "Create" (which is at the far bottom right of the screen, hard to find).


The project created and all the clips were now on the timeline, but because the first image was a vertical still shot, the whole timeline had taken on those parameters. Totally wrong.


I'd like to see New Project give the old dialog box that allowed sequence settings. Then if I want to use the Import screen to bring in clips I can do that, but I'm not in love with using the Import screen to create a new project, at least in this configuration.


Actually I rarely use the import screen, as I usually just drag/drop into the bin from the Explorer window that's open, but I have 3 monitors. I can see where it might come in handy for people with only one monitor.
