    Gradle project sync failed. Basic functionality will not work. This is ever since the update to 13.1.2

    The hot swapping of resource files like *.xhtml doesn’t work with the new version. Do you know how to fix this?

    I use WildFly and Java 8.

    Kind regards

      This is because IDEA updater need administrator privileges to update files but it can’t so the only way is to change access rights to IDEA directory as for old-school win95 applications 😉

        Or you can run IDEA as an administrator to perform an update. It worked for me when I was updating from 13.1.4 to 13.1.5 and had same exception with file: resources_en.jar.

        Note: After updating you shouldn’t use IDEA as an administrator.

          13.1.4 -> 13.1.5 still not working here, even after starting IDEA as administrator.

    The has about 50 files not contained in the ideaIU-13.1.2.exe.
    Some are plugin jars and others look like android template files.

    Sorry I can’t report this to YouTrack now.

    Like 13.1.1 much better. When grails is open with another project, the ide eventually starts indexing like crazy and both projects lose their dependencies.

    Wrong blog entry, since this concerns build 760, but there isn’t one for that (yet):
    To start with: I realise it is an impossible task to remain fully compatible with all plugins during EAP and so on.

    That being said:
    This is the second time in as many months that the new EAP breaks PHP compatibility and that I have to fall back on an “ancient” version to be able to continue working.

    I really like to have the latest of the latest, so I do it to myself, but really: How hard can it be to mention in the release notes that this EAP breaks languages X and Y? This way the people that need it can wait with the update.

    Just saying 🙂

    Since 13.1.2 problem when opening a project which was checked out from subversion when the subversion server is not available, it continously ask for authentication details and one cannot do anything apart from killing the IDE.

    Not cool.

    Selection seems to have a bug in 13.1.2, it’s happening to me on both Windows and OS X.


    1. Put cursor somewhere
    2. Hold shift (continue holding after click)
    3. Click somewhere else to select multiple lines (continue holding mouse down)
    4. Move mouse to try and select more lines

    The result is the selection re-starts from where you initially clicked, while it should be adding to the selection

    I’m having a serious issue on OS X Mavericks. Sometimes, it seem quite random, I open a new file, and when I start typing in it, IntelliJ freezes and I have to force quit it. Am I the only one having this issue? I had to come back to IntelliJ 13.0…
