selecting global libraries

In IDEA 5 I could check off which global libraries I want to use. IDEA 6 imported all my global libraries, but now how do I select which ones to use? I'm trying to avoid deleting them so I don't need to create them again later.

Just remove them from the dependencies panel, they won't be deleted. If you want to add a library again, you can select 'add global library' in the dependencies panel.

Thanks, now I understand. I saw the list of libraries under each module and the (empty) list of project libraries, but I didn't realize that the module dependencies tabs can also configure libraries.

What is the point of the selection checkboxes in the dependencies tab? They seem sort of redundant or useless. Thanks for the reply. I had the same question too.

If module A depends on module B and module B depends on module C, then module A has access to the content of module C only if the checkbox is selected. Without the checkbox selected you would have to add another dependency from module A to module C.
