Everytime idea runs it open nothing or the last project. it seems that it is only designed to open with only its project files. pl., confirm...

thanks

Hello Awan,

It is not possible to open a file in IDEA without having a project open.

Hello Awan,

the OpenInIDEA plugin might help you. See http://www.intellij.net/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=271001

(However, you will have to have a running instance of IDEA with at least one project open in order to open a file in IDEA).

Best regards,
Jens
