Artifacts not imported or created for imported modules

Hi all
please forgive me if this question is so silly , but the artifacts are so new in 9

when i create new module by importing another module, the artifacts are not imported
ok ,this may seems reasonable as i am importing module not artifact
BUT , when i create a new module from scratch , a new artifact is created automatically for it and updated automatically as i add dependencies(by providing me hints to fix )
this does not hapen for imported modules, that is , no artifact are imported , no artifact are created automatically
i have to do it all manually including correct dir structure
am i missing something? or is this intended for some reason
thanks
Joe

What do you mean by "import module"? Do you import module from an existing iml file or you're importing module from Maven?
Note that an artifact doesn't belong to a specific module. Artifacts are stored in .ipr file (or in ./idea/artifacts directory if you're using
directory based format).

Hi

I pretty much did the same. I mean i had existing projects that were created with Intellij 8.x.x and now I am trying out IJ 9 and all I did was open up the intellij project pointing it to the existing .ipr file and it did a quick conversion and everything came up for me. Are you using Maven by any chance? If so try importing it based on the pom of your project.
