IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.0 Web Help

Specify the library name, level and contents.

Item Description
Name Use this field to edit the library name.
Level Select the library level (global, project or module).
add (Alt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+InsertAlt+Insert or Ctrl+NAlt+InsertCommand N or Control EnterControl N or Control EnterCommand N or Control Enter) Use this icon or shortcut to add items (classes, sources, documentation, etc.) to the library.

In the dialog that opens, select the necessary files and folders. For a Java library, these may be individual .class, .java, .jar and .zip files, the directories containing such files, etc. For an ActionScript/Flex library, these may be raw ActionScript 3 libraries, .swc, .jar and .zip files, the directories containing such files, and so on.

IntelliJ IDEA will analyze the selected files and folders, and automatically assign their contents to the appropriate library categories (Classes, Sources, Documentation, etc.).

When IntelliJ IDEA cannot guess the category (e.g. when you select an empty folder), a dialog will be shown, in which you will be able to specify the category yourself.

icon_doc_url To be able to use external documentation available online, click this icon and specify the URL of the external documentation in the dialog that opens.
rootExcluded Click this icon to make certain library items "excluded". In the dialog that opens, select the items that you want IntelliJ IDEA to ignore (folders, archives and folders within the archives), and click OK.
