Settings in 8940

Hmm .. what happened ? It's so unusual now. Can't find the module settings ... I'd much prefer the previous style with icons.

Project structure settings (including module settings) are moved into a
separate dialog ('File' -> 'Project Structure' or CtrlAltShift+S). But
I don't like the new style either. It is more confusing than before and
IMHO doesn't add any value - at least I didn't find anything better yet.

I agree .. what was wrong with the previous dialog ?

Old UI doesn't scale. There are too many pages so they tend to go off-screen with enough plugin installed. Also the pages themselves tend to be enormously large and group unrelated options.

I found the module stuff, but where are the libraries and Java SDK settings?

I have managed to tweak the 'Libraries' scope settings to display the library packages instead of the project module packages(!), but where do I set up the libraries and select the Java SDK?

I'm stuck until I can set up libraries and SDK - I'm going to have to reinstall 8890.

- Ah, no, OK - found them - in a separate menu option altogether...

Well I prefer new UI (which is actually close to previous "classic" UI isn't it ?), tree view is more usual and more extensible. A bit raw without icons, but I guess it's coming.

And shortcut for accessing directly to project settings is great :)

It was noted that it has changed and some things might not work,btw.

I like the new setting dialog (its like Eclipse), it scales better IMO, although i miss being able to get to the maven settings from the Maven project pane - can that shortcut/settings icon be put back in the maven pane?

Some issues:

- I cannot find where i limit the size of Run dialog log contents
- you cannot change the maven settings. (cant type in the box where you specify settings, or maven home, etc)

Thanks.

Hello Trevor,

We've moved console limit to idea.properties file. Could you please describe
why do you need it?

Thank you

I was searching for the console limit as well. I'm working on a command line program now that outputs a fair amount of text. It's running past the limit and keeps me from scrolling back to see all of the output.

I am in this boat too. Setting the log limit should be more obvious.
