Maven support: Javadocs downloaded by "maven-idea-plugin" not viewable :(

See the image attached - when third party Javadoc is located in the Maven repository as a jar file - IDEA can't use it

Any comments on that ? I mean, guys, nobody ever wants to see the Javadocs downloaded automatically from Maven repository ? Do you configure them manually ?

Hello Evgeny,

IDEA never could display javadoc from jars in external browser. Ctrl+Q should
work though (I even tried that with this specific jar).

Best regards,

Ok, I get it. I'll think of modifying "maven-idea-plugin" so that it'll unpack the javadoc jars downloaded. Or may be (just an idea, you know) - IDEA can unpack the jars in the "system" folder (after getting a confirmation from the user). This way working with Maven/maven-idea-plugin and declaring all dependencies correctly would allow one not to worry at all about setting third-party sources, javadocs, etc ..
