IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.0 Help

Creating Directories

IntelliJ IDEA enables you to create directories under a module directory that is not a source root. So doing, it is possible to create directories recursively, thus producing a whole directory structure.

Directories are marked with the folder icon folder.

To create a new directory

  1. In the Project tool window, select the destination directory node.
  2. On the context menu of the selection, choose New | Directory, or press Alt+Insert to invoke the context menu.
  3. In the New Directory dialog box that opens specify the directory name. You can also specify nested directories; in this case, use slashes as the delimiters. Click OK. IntelliJ IDEA creates the new directory or directory structure.
