Adding projects to version control (subversion)

I'm using a fresh install of IntelliJ 7.0.2. Shouldn't there be somewhere an option to add an existing project to version control - subversion in my case? I can't find anything except the "Import to Subversion" menu item under "Version Control".

Hello Oliver,

I'm using a fresh install of IntelliJ 7.0.2. Shouldn't there be
somewhere an option to add an existing project to version control -
subversion in my case? I can't find anything except the "Import to
Subversion" menu item under "Version Control".


Right click the content root of your module and select "Share Directory"
from the context menu.

Dmitry, I'm assuming this is some sort of Subversion 'standard
terminology'? It isn't really obvious that 'Share Directory' means this,
so I'm guessing that's the only reason for this choice of text...

To tell the truth we chose this text because it's what Eclipse uses.

I've triple checked everything before posting here. There was no such option. But Subversion integration was confirmed working. I've solved the problem by defining a VCS Directory Mapping usings the project options dialog. Yey, there must be reason why I do not see any sharing menu items etc.

By the way the project is managed using maven.

If you don't have VCS configured for the project, then you can use the "Import
into Subversion" action.

Now I'm confused. Dmitry, could be so kind and explain to how adding a project to source control would be normally done in IDEA and why I didn't work for me (sharing option simply missing from the menu) despite the fact that Subversion integration is otherwise working fine in the IDE?
