Item Description
Confirm rerun with process termination The behavior of this button depends on selecting the check box Single instance only for a particular run/debug configuration.
  • If this check box is selected, then, in case of a single instance, launching a new process (for example, by clicking run on the main toolbar) while the other process is still running, results in showing a dialog box, where one should confirm termination of the current process and launching a new one.
  • If this check box is not selected (or in case of multiple instances), IntelliJ IDEA starts the new process silently.
Temporary configurations limit Specify here the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.
