View => "External Documentation" is grayed out ? (93.54)

I'm using build 93.54 and Java7, it's Documentation Path is set to "http://download.java.net/jdk7/docs/api/"
While standing on a class I click Shift+F1 (View => External Documentation) but nothing happens since it's grayed out (disabled) in a menu.
Is there a problem with external Javadoc URL? "http://download.java.net/jdk7/docs/" doesn't work either.


Thank you!

It only started to work when JavaDocs were download locally

Hello Evgeny,

Did you specify JavaDoc url? Works for me here.

Thank you

I also have never been able to get Idea 9 to display javadoc from a local zip archive whether pointing to the archive or having it expanded.
This is under Win7

Pointing to the javadoc using an external URL seems to work OK.

Idea 8 had no problems with a local zip archive for javadoc.

I find it useful having it work with a local copy of the javadoc since its not always possible for me to be online while working.

Yes, I specified the URL and I see it now also works for all of them:


http://java.sun.com/javase/7/docs/api/
http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/
http://download.java.net/jdk7/docs/api/




I honestly don't know what was different the previous time .. But thank you, Anna!
May be your involvement was enough
