Global and project settings divorced

Is this only my opinion: I think it is not so nice to have the project settings devided into two spaces. Prior 8.x settings were found in one dialog, which was so nice to have. Now you have one icon more (one for global settings and one for module setting). And even more confusing the project has settings in both types of dialogs.
Is there a way to rejoin this?

Thanks
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

No, of course there is no way to change this for users. The logic is that
the Project Structure dialog defines everything about how your project is
structured (modules, libraries and so on) - so this is not really a settings
dialog. And the Settings dialog defines how the IDE behaves for you.

Currently some of the settings that should be in Project Structure (for example,
the compiler resource patterns) are still under Project Settings, but we
plan to move them so that this logic is fully consistently implemented.

ttings in both types of dialogs.

I am actually quite happy with this split. To change something about project, I go to a specific project dialog, to change something about the whole IDE I go to another dialog, that's a better design in my opinion. Especially as both dialogs are getting more and more complicated.
