How to find usage in Forge sources with IntelliJ IDEA?


Recommended Posts

I'm used to Eclipse where I can directly search for a method through my mod and Forge itself with a full text search, it's not perfect but it does the job.

Now, I'm giving a try to IntelliJ IDEA and I can't find a way to search through Forge source.

The global search doesn't go through Forge sources. The 'find usage' just stop at my mod, unlike in Eclipse where it actually go through Forge sources too.

I did a setupDecompWorkspace on my mod and forge itself before importing them through grade into IntelliJ IDEA.


What am I missing?


I'm on Mac with forge 1.7.10 and IntelliJ IDEA 2016.1.2.

When you first run Find Usages, you should get a dialog box asking you what types of usages to search for and where to search. Change the Scope to "Projects and Libraries" to search in the project and its libraries (including Forge).


You can also bring up this dialog box from Edit > Find > Find Usages Settings... or by clicking the Settings button in the Find Usages result window.

Please don't PM me to ask for help. Asking your question in a public thread preserves it for people who are having the same problem in the future.
