WAR/exploded artifact output directory always overwritten by maven import

everytime i reimport a maven war project the artifact output directories in Project Structure get overwritten.  Is it possible to turn this off?  i don't want intellij sending its output to the same directory as the maven build.

checking and unchecking  'use maven output directories' in maven import settings has no effect.


yees, but that is a 2 year old issue.  the explanation in the ticket is that this is expected because intellij keeps the project output directory in sync with your maven pom.xml...except that it doesn't, not if you untick 'use maven output directories'.  so why does it keep syncing the artifact directories?
