build multiple artifacts

how do i select a couple of artifacts for building at the same time?  my friend on a mac with IDEA 12 just presses option and clicks a few artifacts, but i can't figure what key it is on my computer.  I'm using IDEA 11 on linux.

thanks,
jayen

Please try Ctrl+Click.

doesn't perform a multiple select.  ctrl+click just changes which one is selected.

It does for me, on Ubuntu with Gnome. What is your linux, window manager and JDK?

Kubuntu 12.04, Kwin4, Sun JDK 6

Sorry, can't reproduce. I have old Kubuntu. Tried there both JDK 6 and 7 (with Darcula, if does matter). Ctrl+click in the Build Artifact popup (are we talking about the popup?) makes multiple selection.

maybe i overrode the shortcut key?  can you tell me what this functionality is called in the settings?

so normally, the selected one is the one under my mouse cursor.  holding ctrl while moving the mouse doesn't change that.  ctrl+click deselects the one under the mouse cursor, until the mouse moves, which reselects the one under the mouse cursor.

so i guess ctrl-click is working?  the problem is that the selection changes just my hovering?

This feature was added in IDEA 12 (http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-77450) so you need to update your version of IDEA to get it.
