Within the 'Current Repository' tab you can specify the class name and the namespace of the automatically generated source code for the current repository.

On the 'Repository Default' tab page you can specify defaults for the class name and namespace of newly created repositories. Additionally, the timeouts used for newly created repository folders and items can be changed in the 'Timings for new entries' group box.

The setting 'Enable folder caching' can be unchecked to turn off folder caching for all items by default. Uncheck the checkbox 'Enable folder autogeneration' to prevent the repository from creating rooted folders automatically.

Repository Troubleshooting - Folder Caching

In some situations, repository items cannot be found because the caching information of the item's parent folder is incorrect. In such cases, replaying the steps involving these items may only work part of the time or only with long delays.

This is caused by a fallback mechanism which is used to search for an item without using the cache if the first attempt fails. If this occurs, it is recommended to disable the folder cache for the item's ancestor folders by setting the 'Use Cache' property to 'False'.
