I have been using Eclipse for over 5+ years and decided to try out IntelliJ 11, due to my disappointment in Juno.
Two things that I really enjoyed in Eclipse I have trouble setting up in IntelliJ:
1) In Eclipse, if I make any kind of code modifications (adding or deleting), I can see some kind of colored marker on the editor overview or scrollbar to indicate that. In IntelliJ, I can see that configuration is in the Appearnaces editor section but the ability to set the marker error is disabled.
How can I configure that?
2) While in debug mode in Eclipse, if I click the red stop button, it KILLS the thread immediately, terminates the process, and destroys the server. In IntelliJ during debug mode, if I click the red button, it RESUMES out of debug mode, finishes the thread and then disconnects from the server.
The reason why I prefer Eclipse's method more is because if I notice during the debug session that some code is wrong, I can terminate the thread immediately without further processing my test data. In IntelliJ, it continues the thread and writes to my test data, which I could have prevented if the stop button would kill the process immediately.
Thanks for any help.
