Dear gentle, kind, empathetic, generous, helpful reader,
I am trying to do something very basic and fundamental which is to open the same file in multiple windows or the same project (preferably in multiple windows).
I can't believe there is no such option to do that in IntelliJIdea. It was easy to do in Eclipse (New Window option is right there in the menu and the entire project opens so).
I am frankly disappointed with my version of IntelliJIdea Ultimate. I downloaded it because I wanted software engineer metrics and code analysis and UML diagram representation . The UML diagram representation is not at all usable (there is no drilling down from packages to parent classes). I have not tried the software engineering metrics / analytics tool because I can barely import the code from Eclipse.
The most unbelievable thing is that now my copy of Eclipse 4.7 (and older version 4.4) will not start (I am trying to debug it in the eclipse forums). This has caused me hours of delay and lost productivity.
I was hoping to run both the editors and take advantage of the features in one which the other does not have . Netbeans and eclipse work so well together- what is up with intellij idea ? This is really disappointing.
