I have separate logical drives for system stuff and development, and I want my Intellij settings and such to be on my development drive. According to every search I've tried, I should just need to adjust the idea.properties file.
I went into idea.properties and uncommented/modified (what I thought were) the appropriate properties:
idea.system.path=D:/configs/.IntelliJIdea12/systemI then copied the .IntellijIdea12 folder from it's location in C:\Users\... etc to D:/configs.
I then restarted IntelliJ.
changes are invisible within IJ, it hums merrily along and reads/writes config information to the new folder
The folder under c:\Users\... is recreated and I get the post-install wizard to import settings.
What am I missing?
