New in 11: Editing module dependencies on a diagram

Ultimate Edition of IntelliJ IDEA provides an additional way of inspecting the project structure — the diagram of module dependencies. To open it just press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+U or invoke Diagrams | Show Diagram from the context menu on a module node in Project View or Navigation Bar.

IntelliJ IDEA 11 adds the ability to edit module dependencies using the diagram: press Delete on an edge to remove dependency or press Alt+Insert to add a new one.

Your feedback is very welcome, as usual.

    Steven,
    no, this feature works on IDEA project model only.

  4. Alexey says:

    need to also add the reverse mode: who depends on this module.

  5. Alexey says:

    oops, sorry. I mean the opposite: “what other modules this one depends on”
