running without running make first

First 12 is AWESOME. For anyone who hasn't tried it yet it's faster, with a cleaner  UI (and this where the UI was already the cleanest of any complex program I use ) and enormously improved functionality.

question- I am continually crfeating and running little "test" or "experiment" programs  which amount to self contained proofs of this or that. These exist in a project the files of which go in and out of being buildable at any given time.

What I want is to be able to  write, CIOMPILE and RUN my little experiments directly without having to do what I have to do below which is:

COMPILE my "littleExperimentljava" ..  this is OK

RUN "littleExperimentljava" only to have MAKE fail


select "littleExperimentljava" from the drop down menu (of classes which possess the entry method "int main(string[] args)" )

unslect the MAKE checkbox at the bottom of the EDIT CONFIGURATIONS dialog assoc'ed with "littleExperimentljava"

RUN "littleExperimentljava" again.

I don't see anyway to opt out of running  MAKE for a program before I try to run it at least once.

What I want is an option to have MAKE unchecked by default in the EDIT CONFIGURATIONS dialog.

Following up on this, is there any openapi call to configure the default run configurations so that they won't contain 'Make' as the hardcoded "before launch" action?
