Unable to create IDEA plugin SDK

Since a recent reinstall I am unable to create a plugin SDK in IntelliJ 15 & 14 on Mac OS X. Loading up my plugin I get

         Unknown Module Type
         Cannot determine module type for the following modules:


         "de.fu_berlin.inf.dpp.intellij" (type 'PLUGIN_MODULE')
         All mentioned modules will be treated as Unknown modules.


And in Project structure -> SDKs I can only create Java SDKs, there is no option to create platform plugin SDKs.

Do I need to download a specific version to be able to develop plugins?

Best Regards,
Holger

You need to make sure that the "Plugin DevKit" plugin is enabled in Settings | Plugins.

Thank you so much.

By google I only found this page:

https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/help/configuring-intellij-platform-plugin-sdk.html

Which assumes you have already read this one

https://www.jetbrains.com/idea/help/plugin-development-guidelines.html

where this important step is described.

The plugin is enabled by default. The important step becomes necessary only if you have disabled the plugin by yourself.
