Migrating PhpStorm from Windows to Linux. Any issues?

I'm in the process of migrating from Windows 10 to Linux, and I'm wondering if there's anything special that needs to be done in order to make the move?

Will everything in the project folders (ie. the .idea sub-folder of each project) just work after I move the folder over and open it in the Linux version of PhpStorm?

And is it possible to move the C:\Users\users\.PhpStorm2019.2 settings folder from Windows to Linux, or will I need to start fresh on the new Linux install and set everything back up?

There's no specific procedure for that.

Yes, that's for sure, everything inside .idea is cross-platform, unless there are bugs.

And is it possible to move the C:\Users\users.PhpStorm2019.2 settings folder from Windows to Linux, or will I need to start fresh on the new Linux install and set everything back up?

Here, there can be some issues, I am not sure if there are any Windows-like paths are used inside. But it's worth a shot anyways, after all, how bad can it be, If there's something wrong, you can always remove the faulty files.
