Is it possible to see all projects with IntelliJ IDEA?

Hi all,

I'm using the community edition of IntelliJ IDEA and coming from an Eclipse background, I'm wondering if I can see all the projects in the left bar like I normally do in Eclipse. I don't really like the idea of having to switch between projects, specially when you have a bunch of them with a lot of dependencies.

Besides, does the concept of workspace apply in IDEA at all?

Thanks!
Alejandro

See IntelliJ IDEA vs Eclipse Terminology.
Eclipse workspace is like IntelliJ project, so you usually do not have to open several projects.

I see, what if I have several projects I need to be imported to IDEA? Importing them one by one seems to create indenpendent projects, not modules

On the page that I provided a link to there's a link to another help page that describes how to import Eclipse workspace/project. You may start with importing the whole workspace (I'd recommend that) or add Eclipse projects as IntelliJ modules one by one.
