The most infuriating bug

The bug in Idea that steams me the most is the way that find-in-path
sneakily keeps changing the settings (e.g. different directory) or no
regex, behind my back. These settings should be 100% sticky.

This has repeatedly caused major damage when I did not notice.

Refactor early. If you procrastinate, you will have
even more code to adjust based on the faulty design.

Have you opened a bug report in YouTrack?

I find this annoying too; however, I believe there is something behind the scenes that is trying to guess what makes most sense in the current context. I haven't figured out the rhyme or reason to what determines which option is selected though.

I like to mention a bug outside the bug tracking system first. Most
often people tell me it is a feature.
