I have a large maven intellij project which I have been maintaining using maven ultimate 2020.2 for about 4 months now. The experience is. not pleasant to put it mildly,
Every time I open the editor, indexing begins which goes on for at least 45 minutes, blocking me from any editing.
Frequently daily it starts downloading plugins and in the process freezes intermittently.
I compile in small batches using the command line- The moment I compile it restarts the whole indexing process. It is just illogically bizarre.
Please advise what can be done to make this editor's performance less intrusive. I am at my wits end.
