Form SnapShooter

Hi,

I try to recover some forms that i lost using FormSnapshot.
The problem is that the FormSnapshot can't recreate the form file because com.intellij.uiDesigner.core.GridLayoutManager is "captured" as com.intellij.uiDesigner.core.AbstractLayout which is "unknown layout manager" and the components that are using it (the AbstractLayout) are not "captured".

I'm using idea 95.24. And the forms are created with IDEA's UIDesinger.
Any ideas how can i fix this?

Thank you!

IMHO SnapShooter is completely useless. If you are using a different Layout
Manager than IDEA supports, it can't even simulate the behaviour approximately.

I'm using LayoutManager that IDEA supports... The forms are designed with IDEA.

I've read, was just sketching my experience with it.

Hello Ion,

Right now the snapshooter doesn't work with GridLayoutManager - its primary
purpose is capturing forms created outside of IntelliJ IDEA, so supporting
our own layout manager wasn't a priority for us. You can vote for http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-34032
to get notified when (if) this is implemented.
