Customize New Menu

Hi all,

Is it possible to edit the 'New' (create new interface, class, enum, file, etc) menu? I want to move some items, and remove a lot of them. In my project, I'm not using Webservices, Guice, GUI Forms, Flex, etc....), so for a better overview, I'd like to remove these from the list. Is this possible?

Why not start removing unused plug-ins first?

Because I'll then have to restart IntelliJ twice each time when opening a project:

If I work on a Flex project, I have to start IntelliJ, enable the plugin, restart IntelliJ
If I work on a Grails project, I have to disable Flex, enable Grails, restart IntelliJ.

A bit annoying, don't you think? Besides that, there's no plugin for Singleton, or @interface stuff, which I never use at all. So asking for a way to customize this isn't that strange, is it?

Hello Erik,

Some things (for example, Singleton) can be removed by going to Settings
| File Templates and deleting the templates.

Thanks, that's already a good start, but I'd like to customize it a little bit more. Frankly, I don't think removing/disabling the plugins is a good way to do so, since it requires a restart. The main problem I have with the 'new X' menu, is that it's so big. Some releases ago, it contained 8 items, now it contains more than the double of it. Therefor I'd like to tweak it a little, and preferably make it customizable. Thanks, Erik.
