Idea and Mac

Hi, I love the fact that you make a full Mac version of Idea. Think you can add the following 2 lines by default to the plist?

apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar true com.apple.macos.useScreenMenuBar true]]>

This will make it use the menubar at the top of the screen like all other mac apps.

Thanks,

Rob

I've did the same with SmartCVS and Mac OS X users reported, that it did
not have the expected effect...

This doesn't seem bearable right now unfortunately. Idea has its own event queue that doesn't play well with Apple's
screen menu bar implementation. Various unexpected faults appear when using that option so it is not recommended to turn
it on in your personal environment and this would not be a default of course. At least for now.
