Project structure no longer jumps to the current module in the list

Before filing a bug, I'd like to confirm this is indeed a regression.

  • Open a java file
  • Press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-S (win) or just click the Project Structure icon at the top toolbar.
  • Expected: Project Structure dialog opens and a module the current file belongs to is selected in the list
  • Actual: Dialog opens with the first module in the list selected only


I believed this used to work before. The reason - select the module in the Project sidebar, right-click, Module Settings. Opens up the same dialog with the right module selected.

Hello Andrew,

I think the Project Structure remembers the last selected module. To open
Project Structure for the module from editor file, press Alt-F1 7 (Select
In | Project Structure).

  • Open a java file

icon at the top toolbar.

file belongs to is selected in the list

  • Actual: Dialog opens with the first module in the list selected only

You're right, Dmitry,

We could improve this as follows:

  • When the dialog is opened via the toolbar icon for the first time (no previous selection available), jump to the current module in the structure.


This would make it consistent with other ways of getting to the same dialog. Subsequent invocations via toolbar icon will jump to the last-selected module.
