    The @constructor tag is being marked as invalid in my scala code (@param works fine). Is there a way to allow @constructor tags in the code (the scala doc is generated correctly and the compiled code is fine it just shows up as an error when viewing the source).

      To add a bit – @constructor occasionally works but usually doesn’t with the error “under construction”

    It is bug, fixed in the latest nightly (.327):

      Thanks – is there a fix for 11.1.4 (build 117.963)?

    When I run the scaladoc generator on my whole project it does nothing. Scala works fine, I can debug, get I/O and it seems that all is fine otherwise. I have a maven build and include the Scala 2.10.3 jars in its pom as dependencies.

    Is there some other setup I have to do to make it work? I user Scala 2.11 from the command line and it was installed through Mac brew.

      I have the same problem running with Scala 2.10 and IntelliJ 13.1.2 under Windows. Everything works great except the “Generate Scaladoc” option under Tools doesn’t work. It brings up the “Specify Generate Scaladoc Scope” dialog box but pressing OK does nothing. No error messages of any kind. Anyone know what we are missing?

    Well, I went to the idea.log to find the error message (see below). Any ideas?
