Any exceptions in idea.log?

I have the same issue and I suspect it's because my ${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea70 is gone!

I do not know where to find the idea.log file.

I am not sure if this is relevant or not but I do not have a ${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea70 directory.

Thanks for your help.

IDEA follows MacOS X convention for logs and caches so logs can be
found at ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIDEA70/log

I have no ~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIDEA70 directory.

I have found a crash report being generated at ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/idea.crash.log. The log is very long so I won't post the whole thing here. If there is anything specific I should look for in the log, please let me know.

The top of the file looks like this...

Maybe I have found the solution. If I startup the Java Preferences app and drag "J2SE 5.0" to the top of the list of preferred J2SE versions, then Selena starts up. With "J2SE 1.6.0" at the top the application will not come up.

I can confirm that 7020 does not run in JDK 1.6 for Mac out of the box.
However if you must use 1.6 you may edit the info.plist file and remove
-agentlib:yjpagent from the VMOptions.

How is the IDEA's performance when run under JDK 1.6? I thought, the build (b88) from Apple is old (September 2006) and full of bugs (i.e. closing the last editor tab causes an array out of bound exception).

Thanks,
Peter

To be honest I don't regularly run Selena on 1.6 beta because I wouldn't know which beta to blame if i encounter a problem.
But I did just try it on 1.6 and did not experience any problems with closing the last editor tab.
