After spending the afternoon pretty frustrated with the released version of 4.0 and Pallada I was wondering if anyone else out there is happily using Idea under OS X 10.3.3? and If so what I am doing wrong.
I have installed the 1.4.2 preview (mistkane or good idea? I don't know for sure as I haven't really noticed a difference).
I have tried copying
to "IntelliJ IDEA.app/Contents/MacOS/" and rename it to "idea" (replacing
the existing "idea" file) to get Cmd-H and all the other stuff working.
Still I have am experiencing freezes and incorrect functionality.
For example the SQL pluggin doesn't load drivers, the spell check plugin freezes the released version but works Ok with Pallada.
Not too mention the ghost dialogs and apple-q not working (which I understand is an apple problem which I was hoping the preview would fix but doesn't seem to).
In addition, CVS under either version is a bit of crap shoot. Sometimes it works sometimes it hangs. 4.0.2 is better than 2002, but I've gotten freezes in both.
I am not trying to be negative and I really appreicate JetBrains' efforts. I am just trying to get Idea working under OS X a little bit better. Right now it really isn't usable for me on the Mac and that's a real shame.
If anyone has any tips for me I'd appreciate them.
I'd be happy to report the bugs I find too, but I don't see reports like:
sometimes when I select CVS updated Idea freezes as being too helpful.
Is there's some good place to look for additional logging I'd be happy to examine the details there. (Console doens't seem to be the place). In short, I'd be happy to help get to the bottom of these issues and others that I find a long the way, if some one lets me know the details they require.
