trying to change the IDE's heap size from 128MB to a bigger value.
how do I go about doing that?

edit the idea.bat
or the idea.lax file, the files are selfexplaining.

In your IDEA_HOME/bin/idea.lax file, find the line that begins like this (line 68 in my file):

lax.nl.java.option.additional=

The two options -Xms and -Xmx determine start and max heap. Mine look like this:

-Xms256m -Xmx512m

Starting with 256 MB and allowing upto 512MB.

Hope it helps,

Jake
