Is there global (default) settings shared by all projects?

Hi,

Does intellij have notion of glabal settings that can be shared across projects? Wouldn't it make sense to set certain things as global settings that will be a new project default, and allow each project own settings to override if needed?

For example, I find it annoying that for each new project, I have to go enable Compiler > Make project automatically. And things such as configuring/adding new JDK installation is located uner a "Project Structure" is not user intuittive.

Thanks,
Zemian

You can set the defaults for new projects in File > Other Settings > Default Settings and File > Other Settings > Default Project Structure. These are defaults and not global settings. So any changes you make are only applicable to new projects you create and not any current projects.

File | Other Settings | Default Settings and File | Other Settings | Default Project Structure
or Welcome Screen | Configure | Project Defaults

Ah, I see them now. Thank you both Mark and Alexander.

Hum... it doesn't seem to work as expected. Not with Code Style scheme anyway.

I created a custom MyScheme for one of MyProject, but I like to only use it for one specific project. For all other projects I like to use Default Scheme. So I went into File > Other Settings > Default Settings Code Style > Scheme and set to "Default". This seems to have no effect because when I go to MyProject, the CodeStyle is set back to "Default", if I change it to "MyScheme", but then the Default Settings is set to "MyScheme" Scheme.

Does any of you have this behavior? This is not what I expected. A bug?
