Keyboard shortcut for Open Recent no longer works in 14.1

Just upgraded to 14.1, and the keyboard shortcut I had assigned to the Open Recent (project) command is gone and it won't let me assign a new one. Here's another clue: if you search for "Recent" in the Keymap preferences, the "Open Recent" command doesn't even come up.

This action was removed, should be fixed in the next updates, see https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-136619 .

If you're on OS/X and using Alfred, you can use the Menu Bar Search workflow (http://www.packal.org/workflow/menu-bar-search). I wrote it a while ago to surf through application menus using the keyboard. So, typing 'm open recent' in the Alfred search bar gets me a list of all of the recent projects and I can open the one I like using the arrow keys. Of course, I could open a specific recent project just using the name, e.g., 'm myrecentproj'.

Not what you asked for but potentially helpful.

Is the next update 14.1.1 or 14.1.2? because this fix appears to be in the latter?

So we have to wait two releases for this to be fixed? I'd like to go back to 14.0, hopefully it's still available for download somewhere.

Thanks for the Alfred tip, but I'm a happy QuickSilver user, and this needs to be fixed in the app anyway.

Partially good news then. :-) The Alfred workflow was inspired by the Quicksilver plugin for surfing menus.
