    Both in final 12 release and after applying this patch debugging Play 2 app is not working anymore – it just won’t stop at any of breakpoints and won’t successfully connect to JVM.
    Running the app is functional though. Reportedly in latest EAP build everything was ok.

    I just applied the update and all my Perforce menu options are now disabled and no-longer available in file – right-click. Testing the connection in settings works ok?

    Appears that the perforce menu is only available/enabled if the file is checked-out which is a bit annoying when I just want to use the annotate feature to see who modified the file.

    After updating to 12.0.1, switching to Eclipse completely(Android development).
    1. Build Android application artifact was not working in 12.0(assets were not added) when external compiler is used – not working in 12.0.1 even when internal compiler is used(broken completely).
    2. Android application is not launching(shows FEOFException) when external compiler is on(was working ok in 12.0)

    My mistake, the file was from a maven dependency – hence no perforce.

    I’m not able to get my settings ported to the new version. I’m using 12.0.0 on Mac OS X right now. Pointing to the old version, /Applications/IntelliJ IDEA, at startup of the new version does not help. It tells me this is not a valid IDEA directory. Hm…

    I don’t want to export/import settings manually.

    Please advise.

    IntelliJ IDEA 12.0.1 stores the settings in the same place as 12.0. No need to import anything.

    Is this version broken? I just upgraded, but it keeps crashing and refuses to open any files for some reason. No errors in the event log

    John Farrelly,
    This version works fine for me, but I remember having the same issue after applying patch in some of pre-release EAP versions. Downloading the whole *.tar and as opposed to patch solved it.

    The update to 12.0.1 ultimate fails for me. I cannot open any java files, poms, text files, nothing. If I select a file and “Associate with File Type …”, I’m presented with a list that includes:

    The settings dialog is not available.

    I tried creating a new java project. That works, but it won’t let me create any classes. I just get an empty error dialog, after asking for both the class name *and then* the file name. Nothing appears in the event log.

    To make matters worse, I reinstalled 12.0 and it is now behaving that way as well. I’m dead in the water right now.

    I figured out where the failure is, it is in a plugin. I was able to get IntelliJ to work by removing ~/Library/Application Support/IntelliJIdea12/ (I am on OSX mountain lion).

    If I then reinstall the Markdown plugin, the failures happen again.

    This broke my install too, can’t open the preferences window, JS/HTML files aren’t opening (seems their editor is gone??)

    Unfortunatelly I cannot reproduce such problem. For me it works correctly in both external and internal build modes. Try to install the IDE from scratch into empty directory. Also invalidation caches could help ( File | Invalidate Caches). If the problem still exists, please submit an issue to our tracker with detailed description of the problem

    Как отключить “Dark Theme” и включить старый контрастные иконки? (запустите новую тему под GTK+ look&feel и получите нечитаемые серые иконки на сером фоне)

    I got the same problem as Ray Conner. Reinstalled 12.0 and then 12.0.1. Invalidated cache but nothing helped. After I cleaned that directory evertytingh works fine again.
