no squiggle on module in project tree

I have a multi-module project.  When a compile error occurs I see squiggles in the source tree up to the module level, but not at the module level.  To get an overview of my project errors I have to collapse all project modules, then open each module to see if I have errors.  This is, to say the least, awkward.  Is there some setting that enables this feature?

Also, there does not appear to be a "problem view" listing all the errors/warnings in the project (as in eclipse).  Is there such a feature?  Where?

I am using idea 12 ultra.

Yes. In the Project Tool Window, There is a down arrow next to "Project". Click it and select Problems.

OK.  I can see the problems.  Thanks.

What about the error squiggle at the module level?

Alternatively to Problems scope, you can try new feature: Settings / Compiler / Use external build = Yes, Make project automatically = Yes. Problems tool window will open at the bottom. However, it has a number of known limitations and not intended to work exactly-like-Eclipse.

Yes, it's true and I can't find a request to change this in our bugtracker: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA
Welcome to create it, if you believe this would be an improvement.

Alexander.
