Alloy on OS X & the 'command click to select multiple items' problem

I'm on OS X and using the Alloy theme. Command click to select multiple items from a list does not work. Can someone please acknowledge that this will be fixed or that I should bugger off.

Or am I the only one using Alloy on OS X?

All the above are set to closed or duplicate. But the problem is still there.

Please! Who @ Jetbrains do I have to bribe to get this fixed. I can send dutch beer, cheese or whatever you want! :)

Remember that Alloy L&F isn't controlled by JetBrains, and things like multiple selection in lists are fully controlled by the L&F, not by the application.

I've tried to use Alloy a while back, but quickly dismissed as a poor choice -- apparently it's developers didn't spend a second thinking about OS X users.

Not controlled by Jetbrains? Who does then? Is there source available so that I can fix it myself?

Alloy L&F is developed by a company callod Incors GmbH, and unfortunately the source isn't available. Read more about Alloy here: http://www.incors.com/lookandfeel

Well that explains a lot :)

Does this mean IDEA works with any pluggable Look and Feel implementation? Can I find a good one that works ok on the Mac and just drop that in IDEAs lib directory?

Maybe there is a better alternative available somewhere on the net.

You can't just drop a jar in idea's lib directory, you need to let idea know about other pluggable look and feel implementations (usually editing swing.properties in your jre installation).

Anyway, I've tried quite a number of different look and feels, and reluctantly I have to admit that the native OS X look and feel is the only one actually usable, specially after reducing the default font size a couple points.

Hello Stefan,

For the sake of accuracy, http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-9766
is not closed. We are willing to fix it, we just do not know how.

And Marcus is right, the source of the problem is that we do not have the
source.

Thanks for the update Vladislav. I thought it would be a simple one but now I understand what is going on with the Alloy code.
