Error descriptions and quick-fixes are available from the editor and from the Problems tool window. To open the tool window, click the Inspection widget in the upper-right corner of the editor:

  2. By default, the tool reports detected problems of all types. To skip problems of a certain type, select the checkbox next to this type in the Tolerate area.
