Automatically download sources/documentation from maven working great

I complain a lot on these Intellij forums. So for a change here is 'kudos' for a feature working well:

Just do a "Search anywhere" (Opt-Shift-A) for "automatically download".  This brings up Maven |Importing | Preferences dialog.

2/3 way down there are small checkboxes:  Automatically download     Sources  Documentation.   Check these!  Now in good shape.

Please note that the proposed method will not download sources for existing dependencies. In order to download sources on demand you need to select pom.xml and choose Maven->Download Sources (worked for me on IntelliJ ULTIMATE 2017.1)
