perforce plugin question

As far as I can tell doing any perforce operations outside of IDEA confuses
the perforce plugin and basically renders it useless except in the simplest
cases.

For example, IDEA doesn't seem to understand it when I checkout a file using
the perforce client outside IDEA. Is there a way to make it figure this
out? I have tried "Sync Project", but it doesn't seem to do anything for
me.

Is this a bug with the program, a bug with the the user (a.k.a. me), or
"just the way it works"?

Thanks for your kindly attentions.

ps, I am using the latest and greatest pallada build.

I have seen the same thing as well.Basically the localvcs doesn't recognize
the changes made externally. I will try to play with different options in
the lvcs and post a fix if I can come up with something.

Thanks for reporting,

What I expected from the menu item "sync project" was that it would tell
the idea's VCS that perforce files x, y and z are being editted and
therefore should be read/write enabled. If you implemented this
functionality the plugin would be "good enough" to handle most cases that I
can think of. Of course I do not know how feasible this is given the APIs
in idea and/or perforce.

Also, I am interested to know what "sync project" is really supposed to do.
(apparently not what I thought it did)

The "sync project" takes all the module roots and syncs them with perfroce
using "p4 sync dir/..." command.

So its a shortcut to syncing all the files in the project with one click.

I think the functionality you want is something quite useful as well.
