Inspections not working

Answered

I installed 11.1.1 on Mac OSX and set up a new project which contains a mix of PHP, Python, JS, YML, etc. files. All file types load and edit fine, have correct syntax coloring, and the margin on the right indicates TODO items and Git changes. It never shows results of inspections though for any file type even though there should be (a previous install of PhpStorm - now uninstalled - worked fine and showed them). The icon at the top of the margin shows an eye and the tooltip says "Performing code analysis: no errors or warnings found so far." In addition, in the Inspections tab of the Project Preferences dialog, it never shows the list of inspections to configure: it just shows the word "Loading" and a spinner - this goes on forever until I choose another tab or close the dialog. The CPU is not busy during that.

I'm new to IntelliJ so I'm looking for help diagnosing here before assuming it's a bug. Where should I begin to diagnose this?

Please try uninstalling all non-bundled plugins; such problems can be caused by an incompatible plugin.

Thanks, Dmitry.

I disabled all non-bundled plugins and restarted but no change. I then tried enabling only the PHP plugin and still no joy. I disabled that again and looked at a JavaScript file. In that case, I'm seeing what I saw before but forgot to mention: *some* inspections appear to work for JS although the "eye icon" still appears and the tooltip indicates that it found some warnings but it's still working. In the Preferences dialog, the Inspections pane still never loads (CPU is always low and I have 4GB free RAM). Is there something else I can try?

Looks like your problems are caused by a corrupted installation. Please try to completely remove and reinstall IntelliJ IDEA.

That seemed to be the problem. I tried reinstalling twice from the same download I originally installed from but ran into problems. I then did a clean download from the JetBrains site and that installed with no problems. Everything appears to be working just fine now.

Thanks,

I have the same issue with latest Idea.

Already tried re-installing with fresh download and it did not help.

The last report about such behavior submitted 8 years ago. So, your case is hardly related. That is why it is better to create a new post with details of the problem. 

Btw, try to disable "EduTools" plugin. There was a bug in it and the fix will be released in 3.7 version: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/EDU-3200

Disabling EduTools fixed the issue. Thanks!
I guess you have all you need to fix it in the future. :)

It is fixed already, but the build with the fix is not released yet. Stay tuned.
