I get constant: "Unable to save settings: Failed to save settings. Please restart IntelliJ IDEA"
In idea.log I can see:
2017-03-28 09:32:14,003  WARN - mponents.impl.stores.StoreUtil - Save settings failed
java.lang.RuntimeException: com.intellij.openapi.util.io.FileTooBigException: /Users/aismailov/my_project/trunk/.idea/workspace.xml
The workspace.xml file is 30.3MB and something is blocking it from growing larger.
I am on osx 10.12.3 with IntelliJ Ultimate 2017.1.
I have disabled "Markdown support" as recommended in similar threads.
I have chmod -R 777 workspace.xml
If I delete the file, it is re-created and grows to 30.3MB and then stops.
I really need help with this because none of new project related settings I made are saved.
