    Ello,

     

    So i'm used to Eclipse and was trying out IntelliJ again. However when I used IntelliJ I found that it had a horrible GUI builder, well, compared to Eclipse Windowbuilder. 

     

    I like to build my GUI's undecorated for a cleaner look. Yet I don't seem to understand how to do this in IntelliJ.

     

    I feel like IntelliJ is very nice for coding in general, but just the GUI design bothers me. Yes.. I know how to build a GUI without a builder, but I like to use a builder to speed up my coding.

     

     

    Anyone knows how to do this, or is GUI building in general a pain in IntelliJ?

    I recommend the plugin JFormDesigner.

     

    File > Settings > Plugins > Browse repositories > JFormDesigner

    But it asks me for a registration key  :unsure:

    Get an .edu account to to get a free registration for Intellij. Also its better to hand make your GUIs instead of using builders.

    I know, honestly I always just make the basic layout with a builder and then top it off with hand code :P

     

    What is a .edu account by the way and how does this help?

     

    Edit: How does IntelliJ Ultimate help me here? Does it have a better (G)UI designer or?

    You could always create the GUI in eclipse and just copy the .java file it creates to your intellij script.

    By .edu account he means an email with a .edu domain. Aka any school/college.
