IntelliJ IDEA 14.0.0 Web Help

Project Name and Location

Specify the project name, location and, if available, related settings.

Item Description
Project name Specify the project name.
Project location Specify the path to the directory in which you want to create the project. (By default, a directory having the same name as the project is created.)

You can click browseButton (Shift+Enter) and select the necessary directory in the dialog that opens. (You can create a new directory in that dialog, e.g. by using icon_newFolder.)

More Settings Click the arrow (arrow_right_show_settings or arrow_down_hide_settings) to show or hide additional settings. Mainly, these are the settings for the module to be created (discussed below).

Note that in certain cases those additional settings are unavailable.

Module name Specify the module name.

By default, the project name is used. If you accept this and other default module settings, the project folder will act as the module content root folder.

If you change the default module name, IntelliJ IDEA will suggest a new folder (within the project folder) as the module content root folder.

Content root Specify the path to the module content root folder. (This is where all the files that make up you module will be stored; for more information, see Content Root.) The default path is recommended.

To use a different folder, click browseButton (Shift+Enter) and select the necessary folder in the dialog that opens. (You can create a new folder in that dialog, e.g. by using icon_newFolder.)

Module file location Specify the path to the folder where the .iml module file should be created.

By default, this file is created in the module content root folder (recommended).

To use a different folder, click browseButton (Shift+Enter) and select the necessary folder in the dialog that opens. (You can create a new folder in that dialog, e.g. by using icon_newFolder.)

Project format Select the project format to be used. (The .idea directory-based format is recommended).
