Opening .form file in GUI designer using intellij

I was developing a java application in which i created a new

GUI Form
and used the graphical interface to design the form but after everything was working and i quit Intellij idea 14 and then came back the GUI was gone and the form was only editable and viewed in
XML
. Why? How can i get back the GUI designer with drag and drop form building?

Does it help if you close the XML view and then click on the .form file again in the Project View to open it?

It's a glitch caused by some changes in the recent update.

I have the same issue but the .form tabs show up again in XML whenever I restart IntelliJ.

So for every form in my workspace that is open in a tab, the next time I run IntelliJ I have to close it and reopen it from the project tree to see it in GUI Designer rather than the XML editor.

Is there a way to fix this permanently so that it works the way it used to?

Thanks
