Exporting/Importing personal keymaps with IDEA 8

Answered

Hi,

Since I moved to IntelliJ 8, I just can't find a way to export/import my personal keymap settings.

When I attempt to export all my settings from IntelliJ 7, and then import them to IntelliJ 8, the keymaps are just not there.
I then examined what shows up when exporting with IntelliJ 7.x: the list in the popup dialog contains a selectable item named 'Key maps'. (there is no equivalent with IntelliJ 8)

A quick google search didn't help ; nobody seems to have ever encountered the same issue... did I miss something?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Pascal.

Hi again,

I have to add my working environment is the latest release of IntelliJ 8.1, under MacOS X.

Here is a concrete experience:
- create a keymap, named "essai"
- export *all* my settings (via File/Export Settings...)
- remove "essai" from the keymap
- import the settings via 'File/Import Settings...) and restart the app`
=> my keymap "essai" does not appear in the list of available keymaps
(this was working perfectly fine with IDEA 7)

Does anyone encounter the same issue?

Regards,

Pascal.

Regarding Pascal's comment, It's 2018 and this is still now fixed.

Could you please check if your keymap exists in settings archive ("settings\keymaps")?

I can't do this, and have yet to find a way to sync ALL SETTINGS between my Ubuntu 16 machine and my Ubuntu 18 machine. None of the settings sync functionality is worth it if I have to rebuild the keymap!
