how to disable IDE sync settings?

Answered

Clion keeps trying to sync IDE settings, I see the message "Syncing IDE settings..." followed by "Failed to sync IDE settings, click to sync".

How do I disable this? I have unchecked all the boxes in Preferences -> Tools -> Settings Repository.

This is CLion 2019.3 EAP Build #CL-193.4386.19 on MacOS 10.14.6.

Hi!

File > IDE Settings Sync > Disable Sync:

That's strange, I don't have an IDE Settings Sync submenu.

Please go to Preferences | Plugins > Installed tab, find and disable the IDE Settings Sync plugin. Does it help?

I have both plugins IDE Settings Sync and Settings Repository enabled but I don´t see any "Sync Settings" stuff under file anymore, not even the "Settings Repository", "Import Settings", "Export Settings" menu points.

 

In the right bottom corner of the IDE theres an icon saying "Failed to Sync IDE Settings. Click to sync" - when I click on that button nothing happens

@Marianklueh, please click on that button again and after that send the idea.log file (Help | Show Log in ...) to clion-support at jetbrains.com. Note that logs might contain private user's information (like file paths and names).
