Here you mean the same name of the file in the QuickGuides-folder? So I 
name a project "NavBarKeepFindProjects.pr" for instance?

Hm, it doesn't work with two unconverted project files. I tried the 
above mentionend file and another one and put them in an extra folder. 
Then I replaced the original folder with my small one, but when I click 
on an item in the help flap, nothing happens. In the english version, I 
get a menu with two options to choose from and that menu did not appear 
with my small german folder. I attach the two translated projects with 
this mail, perhaps there is something else I did wrong?
