Introduce Variable expression selection not on Linux?

I was using EAP 2136 on Windows last week and I loved the new feature where selecting Introduce Variable without a selection provided a popup list of choices for which expression on the line should be extracted into a variable. Now I'm using 2165 on Linux and this feature doesn't seem to be there.

Is this feature only present on Windows, or was it removed after 2136?

I think what you're talking about is the SmartIntroduce plugin...

That sounds like you had the SmartIntroduce plugin installed. It should
be available for the latest EAP build from the Plugins page in the IDE
settings.

That's funny, I didn't know I had installed that plugin on my Windows installation. Is there a Tracker request for that functionality to be added to IDEA? I can't seem to find one and it's a very useful feature.
