adding a global Grails SDK Follow
My current Groovy and Grails installations are in Global Libraries. I wanted to add Grails 1.3.5. How can I do this in IU-98.486?
I tried Tools > Grails > Change SDK version > Use library > Create... and then chose the directory containing Grails 1.3.5. This upgraded my project and added grails-1.3.5 to Libraries, but how can I get grails-1.3.5 into Global Libraries (or add future versions without upgrading the project)?
I don't want to add a grails-1.3.5 library for every project, because I'm concerned that IntellilJ will duplicate the caching, and I don't want to attach all the dependency sources more than once.

I just realized that the "Move copy to application level" checkbox when I copy a Library must mean to move it to Global Libraries. After all, the global library configuration is stored in a file named applicationLibraries.xml. This may answer my question, but it doesn't really satisfy me, and that terminology does not seem consistent with the UI.
Anyway, I copied that library configuration to that file by hand, because I had to use vi to add a bunch of source paths to it from .classpath. I wish that IntelliJ had a way to automatically download the sources to all the Grails dependencies. I'm using Lari Hotari's trick with eclipse-scripts and manually editing all the sources out of .classpath and into applicationLibraries.xml.
Then it wouldn't navigate into the Groovy source, so I tried File > Invalidate Caches... > Invalidate and Restart, but IntelliJ wouldn't restart. The process disappeared from the Activity Monitor, so I tried restarting from the doc a few times, but nothing happened. I'm running Mac OS 10.6.5. The only unusual thing I did, besides clearing caches and editing applicationLibraries.xml (while IntelliJ was shut down), was disconnecting and reattaching an external display earlier. After I rebooted, it started up fine. (Windows flashback)
Now it looks like I also need to attach sources to the Grails User Library. This looks per-module. sigh
