equivalent functionality to problem pane in eclipse?

I'm trying to make the switch from eclipse to IDEA-8.0.

One thing I'm finding annoying the the inability to get an overview of all current compilation errors and warnings, like the problem pane in eclipse. (I'm not talking about doing a make to find all the compilation problems - I want to see a list of all the problems that I can group in different ways and have instantly available without manually doing any compilations).

Is there a way to do this in IDEA, or am I missing something (i.e. is there a different approach to spotting errors due to code changes when using IDEA)?

Hello ha,

There is no way to see the problems without doing a compilation. (Neither
there is in Eclipse - Eclipse compiles the code for you automatically. If
you want to have auto-compilation in IDEA, you can install a plugin: http://plugins.intellij.net/plugin/?id=3822
)

To see the list of problems after a compilation, you can either use the Messages
window or select "View as: Scope / Problems" in the Project view.

Scope->Problems pretty much does what I'm looking for, and the eclipse mode plugin should fill the gaps.

Thanks!
