I tried to do this for the last three hours with no luck.
I want to be able to import a file/folder in a location on my machine with Intellij giving me the option to link against the file or actually import (ie copy the file) into the project.
This was not possible? I finally got the file to link bby going to file->Setting-> Path and chossing Paths and then adding the file to the content root and coloring this blue - ie source file. But then when I deleted the file it deleted it off the file system
Not impressed at the mo.
Eclipse has a import export option which does exactly that.
