Configuring Intention Actions
IntelliJ IDEA makes it possible to configure intention action settings either in the Intentions page of the Settings/Preferences dialog, or "on-the-fly".
By default, all available intention actions that ship with IntelliJ IDEA, are enabled. By changing the Intention settings, you can disable the actions that are not required for your current working environment.
