IntelliJ – New Project – Scala not appearing

Have you come across the problem of not being able to select ‘Scala’ as part of the ‘New Project’ in IntelliJ as shown below (psst – there is Scala present, I know. For imagination sake let’s say you don’t see it, kapise?)  ?

First thing when you google, everything it points out is for you to installing ‘Scala plugin’.

Let’s say you do have the plugin installed and available and enabled as shown below but even then you don’t find it in the ‘New Project’ –

This usually happens say when you have upgraded your IntelliJ or re-installed your IntelliJ with a different version at different time and have imported the old settings. The best thing to do to get over this error is navigate to the folder – C:\users\<username>\ and delete all the folders starting with .IdeaICxxxx as highlighted below –

That’s it. Now open up your IntelliJ again, all should be good now to get going. Of course this time around you would need to get your JDK and Scala libraries set up. Follow this blog – link
