How to make Idea use jetbrains jvm?

Hello.
I've created 'plugin' run configuration. It works, but when idea runs with my plugin it looks a little bit strange. Fonts differ from true idea, some strange UI bugs, etc. And no "View Psi structure" menu in it. I'm stuck. What am I doing wrong?


True IDEA:  JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o
Sandbox IDEA: JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM by Oracle Corporation

To get "View PSI Structure" in the Sandbox IDE you need to install it in the Sandbox IDE: either manually as you would in your normal IDE, or using the gradle plugin's ability to add plugins


plugins = ["org.jetbrains.erlang:${intellij_erlang_version}",
// always have IdeaVIM installed in sandbox
"IdeaVIM:0.48",
"PsiViewer:3.28.93"

The JRE (thus, the JVM) that is used when running the debug instance of IDEA,etc. is the one specified in the Run/Debug configuration, which, by default, points to the one in project settings (File->Project Structure...) for the module or project you are running.  If you want to use a bundled JRE, then point the run/debug configurations at the IntelliJ SDK that you are using to compile your project against.

PsiViewer is built into the IDE, since 14.0, I believe.  To get it to work in your sandbox, add `-Didea.is.internal=true` to the VM Options line in the run/debug configurations for your plugin project.  I haven't used a plugin for this for a few years now.

The "View PSI Structure" menu items appear on the "Tools" menu.
