So you might be thinking, what? How could you possibly not know that? ;) Bear with me a sec. So I have a largist project structure that I'm working with. It consists of quite a few modules. I'd like to be able to "carry" this structure somewhere else fairly easily, or make a copy of it and have that copy easy to work with. Sounds easy enough. Well, I believe the key piece I'm missing at the moment is the .ipr file. I can not find any sign that IntelliJ created one for me. I suspect it has something to do with how I built the project space, but then again . . . I mean the space as-is is working just fine for me. No problems there. But I want to effectively branch the entire structure to work on another concept and without that .ipr file, I can't just copy the structure, open the new .ipr file, and go. So--- is there any way to force IntellIJ to create the .ipr file if it hasn't already created one?
I know this sounds a tad bizarre -- the problem is I am having trouble coming up with the right words to describe my scenario. I'm hoping this will generate something I can work with or something I can at least provide more details on.
I more or less created this structure from a series of VCS checkouts and .iml files.
