I've just recently started to use IDEA 5.0 after years of using Emacs
and have found it to be quite to my liking. There is one minor point
with which I am having some trouble.
I do a lot of GUI stuff and would like to have all of the Swing
components and some other GUI components available on the GUI toolbar. I
have following the instructions at
but can't seem to get things to work. Using the GUI designer settings I
can get the controls to appear, but I can't get the icons to appear and
having 12 different Greedo heads on the toolbar doesn't help as I have
to search through the tool tips to find the component I want. Here are

The same tip mentions /com/intellij/uiDesigner/default-palette.xml in
resources.jar. I can find resources.jar, but its layout doesn't have the
above mentioned path. Has 5.0 changed from previous versions?
The IDE itself has a settings screen to manage palettes. Where are the

Any help on getting this working would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
