I am using Gradle for a multi-project project. It's basically one master project (with absolutely no gradle plugin applied) and a couple of child projects. Mostly using the Gradle 'java' plugin. One is using the 'android' plugin from Google.
Running the Gradle build on the command line shows that the master project has basically no tasks - which is expected since it doesn't apply and plugins and servers just as a container for the child project.
Here is the problem now: in the Intellij Gradle Tool Window the master-project somehow (incorrectly) shows to have ALL the tasks from its child projects. This is very annoying since there are sooo many tasks. I have to scroll very long to get to the actual child projects in this Gradle Tool Window.
I would understand if the Master Project would show the tasks that are common to ALL child projects. This way you could execute all tasks with a certain name in all child projects with a single double click. But no. The master project node lists ALL tasks. Even tasks that are specific to a single child project.
This clearly is a bug since the Gradle Tool Window is hardly useable this way. Can I somehow trick the master node not to list ALL tasks of its child projects?
