Find usages not working (Alt+F7)!

Answered

Hello there.
I have been using IntelliJ for 4 year.
I have 10.5.2 U.
My problem for some reason find usages and ispections have stopped working.
My classes get highlighted for deletion and when I try to find usages of variables that are used many times at the same class it finds nothing.
Things I tried:
1. Recreate the project/modules
2. Reset ide settings to default
3. Use EAP 110.187
4. Removed some external plugins

What is strange though is if I use the text search (crtl+shift+F) it finds all of them in all the classes.?:|

Any hints?

Thanks!
That was it.
Now why didn't I do that earlier?
Most of the time it the caches' that have a problem and a simple invalidation will fix it :D

Thanks for posting this (I know it was a long time ago) but it was the fix I needed and it was driving me nuts.

Thanks again.

Err... do what?

I solved my problem via the menu.  Are you saying there's a different/automatic thing that can be set up?

I had the same problem, and invalidating the caches fixed it!

Attaching Idea logs as previously requested, in case that will still be of help to the developers.

New geforce experience registered some shortcuts including ALT+F7, I found it using ( HotKeysList http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/hot_keys_list.html ) and after some investigation I found that it is related to the share feature from it (which it is enabled with alt+z but registers some shortcuts globally). You can disable it in the configuration, or reconfigure shortcuts after pressing alt+z. Hope it helps someone :) as I tried the invalidating cache and it didn't work.

The tip about the Geforce experience did it for me !  (as invalidating cached didn't help either)

It was GeForce Experience's fault:

Yes I had the exact same problem with GeForce Experience. It is easy to test if it is running by trying shortcut Alt+Z to open it.

Please describe the issue from the beginning. What exactly is not working? Do you have geforce experience running?

How can Alt +F7 (please pay attention that i tried also via menu!) sometimes work, and sometimes not?! I'm on 2021.1.1.

Damn, it was Kubernetes v211.7142.13 plugin fault. Just disabled it and Alt + F7 restored. idea.log is full of Kubernetes exceptions.

This has just started to occur for me.  It is very frustrating.  I have tried the "invalidating cache", it did not work for me.  Pressing ALT+F7 or using the File menu, the search appears to be attempted but then this is displayed.  I'm using CLion 2021.2.3.

Can someone please advise how I can fix this?

Edit: I've noticed that the issue occurs for me when the usages of a function are not in the same file, it works to some capacity when the usages of a function are within the same file.  So looks to be some sort of scope issue.

Chris Nocker on what build system is your project based? Did you create it in CLion? Or did you open an existing project?

on what build system is your project based?

Where do I find the "build system" to answer your question?  It is a Rust project.

Did you create it in CLion?

Yes.  The project was originally created in CLion.  I have recently restructured the project, so could this have something to do with this functionality not working for me any more?

I have tried everythin described here. It still does not work for me. It just stopped working out of the blue. I am using IntelliJ IDEA 2022.1 (Ultimate Edition) on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS. Any help is greatly appreciated.
