Where is "suitable" being used? As an American, seems like a perfectly good
English word to me....
Some of you feel that the documentation is lacking -- can you please be more
specific as to what you'd like to see? We have many different skill level
users using IDEA, and we try to accommodate everyone; however, if we don't
have specific feedback, then we don't know what documentation to prioritize.
There will be a "Quick Start" guide coming out soon, and this will address
many of the basic features to get you up and going. But, what specific
would you like to see.
As for misspellings -- it happens. Please, when you say "there are
misspellings," can you please tell us WHERE, so we can fix them?
And finally, if you have any questions, concerns, or complaints about
documentation, please post them in: jetbrains.intellij.documentation -- this
is why we have it.

I can read the help online, and even print each individual page but I
would rather print
the entire thing and work through it like a book.
The situation is even worse: help file is not complete and has a lot of
misspellings and sometimes just bad english ("suitable" is not english and
barely an american english). I am not saying that my english is perfect,
I can see errors in the others' documents. I did not read the whole help
file, but here is one example: intentions. "Editing files/Indended
does not describe how to turn intention back on. The list of intentions is
As a general help file drawback: the search option within the help page
(ctrl-f or something) is unavailable, so for example I cannot locate
intention in the intention list.
The help text is written in a slow book manner ("when you have a lot of
code, mistakes are unavoidable..."). Hey, this is not a book which I read
over the dinner, this is an online help file! I know that I make mistakes.
know that IDEA can assist. I know "for instance". Make it short, clean,
complete. Mean business!
Here is how I would rewrite the aforementioned section about intentions
polished, but gives the idea):
Intention Action inline code wizard helps to maintain:
Intention Action is visually identified in a source code pane as a yellow
("turned on") light bulb on the left margin of the code pane. Intention
Action light bulb is displayed when caret is positioned on the suspicious
To open the Intention Actions list:
the Inline Wizard window (To the readers: "Inline Wizard window" or
"Autocorrect window" or "Smartedit toolbox" should be defined in editor
cotrols' description in the other part of help file. Also, bullets for "do
this AND then this AND then this" and for "do this OR this" should be
- OR -
To apply the Intention select appropriate action from the Intention Action
To turn the particular Intention Action rule off click on the lightbulb on
the left of the rule. The lighbulb becomes gray ("turned off").
To turn on the intention press ...
To turn off all Intention Actions press ...
And so on.
