Looking for some direction here, trying out jetbrains intelliJ for the first time and I love the IDE as a whole as far as code editing being an avid phpStorm user, but having alot of trouble with the UI Designer it seems no matter what "base layout manager" I choose form elements just won't place where I want them too. either they stack when I want elements side by side and/or these horizontal/vertical spacers are inserted which are not sizeable and do not allow me to size JPanel elements around as I want them to look. Coming from netbeans here where I can place elements on a form/dialog whereever I wish , I do not understand how this UI Designer is even considered usable or stable?
Is there perhaps some known issues on OSX? Issues with JDK 7 ? I just cannot see idea putting out a product like this..
