how to config spacing between folder/file list in project tool window

Answered

How to config/change the spacing between folder/file list in project tool window? See below screenshot. each ">" indicates a folder/list in the project tool window. I'd like to reduce the spacing between then to make it compact. I recalled it was more compact in the previous version. Is there a setting I can change this? Thanks.

Add

ide.override.Tree.rowHeight=20

in Help | Edit Custom Properties and restart the IDE. Adjust the number for the desired row height.

Thanks Serge.

I tested with value of 20 and 5, restarted the IDE, doesn't seem to make a difference.

Running 2021.1.2

Works fine here with the same version. Try with the default IDE settings (File | Manage IDE Settings | Restore Default Settings...: https://i.imgur.com/kbrkC7w.png) and no third-party plug-ins installed. You may be using some third-party theme plug-in which overrides IDE settings.

Thanks for the confirmation and suggestion. Hesitated to do reset of settings since I don't remember all the settings I changed.

Searched and found this https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60195852/how-to-make-project-tree-layout-compact-again-in-intellij-idea, this works but doesn't persist restart.

Hello, the above does not work for me and 2021.3, the linked stack overflow trick no longer works. Please advise.
