I'm trying out Intellij IDEA 9.0.4, as our dev team is searching for Eclipse alternatives. I ran into few issues while setting up the IDEA environment:
1) Colors and fonts, Java editor
Changing the default theme to a black one was easy, but there was one issue I couldn't figure out:
For some reason, a String which has regexp data in it is drawn differently. See idea_code.JPG and compare it to eclipse_code.JPG. Is this is a bug or am I missing something from the color/font configuration?
2) Ant support
We use several external files to enhance to Ant build process, such as ant-contrib-1.0b3.jar, jsch-0.1.42.jar and yui-compressor-ant-task-0.5.jar. The build process itself works fine in IntelliJ IDEA, but the Ant editor is complaining about the <var> tag, <scp> and <sshexec> tasks etc. Is there a way to "add" these files to the IDE, so that it won't mark these tags as errors?
