GUI Designer IntelliJ 2016.2 - How to find the GUI Designer?

Answered

Hi all,

im a bit new to IntelliJ and im struggling to find the GUI Designer. I read the manual and some posts but somehow its not working for me.

Im using MacOS 10.11.5 with

IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2 
Build #IU-162.1121.32, built on July 9, 2016
Licensed to (removed)
You have perpetual fallback license for this version

JRE: 1.8.0_76-release-b216 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o

When i go to "Preferences" search for "gui designer" i find nothing. 

When i try to create a new file in my project a GUI Form is not offered in my list. 

Maybe im doing something terrible stupid and forgot to configure something at one point.

I hope that someone is able to help me here and point me in the right direction.

Many thanks in advance
Markus

Plugin name is "UI Designer". Make sure it's  enabled: http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/webhelp/enabling-and-disabling-plugins.html.

GUI forms can be created only in Java source roots (where you can create Java Class and Package from the New menu).

Hi Serge,

the Plugin "UI Designer" was disabled in my settings. After enabling it and restarting IntelliJ the GUI Designer is available. 

I knew it must have been something simple. Case Closed :)

Many Thanks for your help!!
