Can't "Run" anything in new build (5350)

I cannot execute main methods or tests by right-clicking and selecting "Run..." nor can I simply click the Run button at the top to get code to execute under build 5350. The command appears to be ignored completely. Anyone else seeing this?

Well, 5350 is actually completely useless. They removed the possibility to add a JDK so no program can actually be run or compiled for that matter.

I'm quite sure you're wrong here. They changed the way how to add a JDK,
and IMHO the new gui is not very polished yet. But there's no problem
adding a new JDK:

File -> Settings -> Project Roots -> '+'-Icon -> Jdk -> Add JSDK

I definitely agree that the GUI could definitely do with some work.

Adding the JDK took no time at all, but actually finding where to set the project JDK took me ages to find!

Hello Simon,

I think it is the metter of habit ;)
We've polished UI. I hope that you would like it in next EAP.
Anyway feedback is highly appreciated

Thank you

I'm quite sure it is habit, as it's the first time in months I've actually had a bit of time to look at the EAP :)

Do you prefer feedback here, or in JIRA requests?

Anna,

One first helpful thing would be to open the dialog with some reasonable
size. It took me quite a while to discover the right part of the dialog
(see attached picture how the dialog opened for the first time). Until
then I was wondering what this useless list of JDK's was supposed to do...

It would also be useful to highlight which JDKs are actually being used as Project JDKs and Module JDKs (a little P or M icon, or something like that). Either that, or potentially having a mini-tree structure under each JDK showing exactly which modules are using it.

Hello Simon,

now (since 5360) there is special find usages on jdks and libraries and even
on modules to discover where they are used ;)
The same jdk can be used as project jdk as well as module jdk ...

Thank you.
