JavaDoc won't work in Community version

I have tried everything I can find to get JavaDoc generation to work with my project and it just won't generate.  So I installed the full trial (beta) version and it works perfectly.  Any suggestions as to what could be wrong in my Community version settings?  They are the same in both versions but I have to be missing something of course.  I'm stumped!

Hello Larry,

I have tried everything I can find to get JavaDoc generation to work
with my project and it just won't generate.  So I installed the full
trial (beta) version and it works perfectly.  Any suggestions as to
what could be wrong in my Community version settings?  They are the
same in both versions but I have to be missing something of course.
I'm stumped!


So what happens when you invoke the action? Do you get the dialog with the
options? When you select the options, is the javadoc tool started? Are there
any exceptions in idea.log?

In the Community version I open up the "Tools-Generate Javadoc" and check the options I want which is about all of the ones on the right, also Whole Project, and click OK and nothing happens.  No output box, nothing.

When I do the same things in the full trial version, the output box dialog shows what is going on and the files are generated in the directory I supplied.  It works perfectly.

I would have reinstalled the Community version but I have it installed on my desktop and my laptop and it does the same thing on both.  So I figure it's unlikely a reinstall would fix this problem.

I'll push the fix, if 9.0.5  will be released it will contain the fix. It is possible to fix your  current build. Please invoke Ctrl-Shift-Alt-/, choose registry, set  actionSystem.noContextComponentWhileFocusTransfer=false. Thank you


I applied this registry alteration and it works fine now.  Thanks a bunch!

You may want to update to IDEA 10 where this issue should be resolved.

I just updated and 10.0 works great with the JavaDoc option.  Thanks for the good advice.  I didn't know it was available yet.
