I am using idea 8.1.3 on mac os x 10.5.8 - spaces enabled (2) and on a regular basis I have the following problem:
When I click on a menu item which is supposed to open a popup window ([version control, commit changes] or [Run, run] the window does not show up and the menu-item is grayed. Switching to another application and then switching back does not help. Sometimes I can solve the problem by pressing the shortcut key, and another solution is to close idea completely and restart.
Also looking for the popup window via spaces does not help.
Has any one had this behaviour and knows how to solve it ?
