I'm currently evaluating IDEA (2.6) and have a couple of questions... I can't get the file synchronisation to work at all :( If I have a tool in IDEA which, say, reformats the Java code, it doesn't update in the IDE automatically (which would be useful and is supported in tools like JBuilder). But even if I manually select "Synchronise Files" it doesn't update. In addition the "Reload From Disk" option is disabled until you've made changes so I can't even use that. It all makes working with external tools (editors and formatters) rather tricky :( Is it possible to get IDEA to work in a more "standard&qu   More>>

  • I can't get the file synchronisation to work at all :(
    If I have a tool in IDEA which, say, reformats the Java
    code, it doesn't update in the IDE automatically (which
    would be useful and is supported in tools like JBuilder).
    But even if I manually select "Synchronise Files" it
    doesn't update. In addition the "Reload From Disk" option
    is disabled until you've made changes so I can't even use
    that. It all makes working with external tools (editors
    and formatters) rather tricky :(


  • Is it possible to get IDEA to work in a more "standard"
    way with respect to editing and saving files. There is
    no "Save File" option as far as I can see (only "Save
    All") and I can close an editor with changes and the
    changes aren't saved or lost (they are still there in
    memory until I "Save All"). It would IMHO be better
    if when closing an editor it asked you to save/lose
    any changes (so you can't have an edited file open
    without an editor pane). At the moment it is very hard
    to track your edits if you close the pane :(


Otherwise a fantastic IDE - big improvement over our in-house JBuilder setup :)

Answering my own post - file synchronisation appears to work now (no change to setup). Hmmmm....



Point about saving still valid though (as far as I can see)...
