IntelliJ UI Designer

I've been searching around for an hour on whether IntelliJ can use java.awt components in their UI designer.
Specifically I need to use java.awt.Canvas, I used to use IntelliJ all the time and find it nicer to use than other IDE's, so I'm hoping someone has an answer?
I haven't managed to find an answer or question similar, if this has previously been asked/answered a link would be excellent.
Current JDK version: 1.7.0_04
Current IntelliJ IDEA version: 12.0 (latest build from main site)
