I've started a new project where we use MacBooks, IntelliJ, and Maven. Being a Windows (or Linux), Eclipse, Ant guy, I'm out of my comfort zone on several levels.

OK, so one question at a time. In Eclipse, you have the ability to hit a button called "Link with Editor", which shows you where the file currently open in your editor exists in the project hierarchy. That's pretty useful for complex projects. I'm sure IntelliJ can do the same thing, but how?

Roll over some icons; they tell you what they do.

In the "project" view there are icons of an arrow going into a box, and an arrow coming out of a box. Those are the ones you want.

Thanks Dave, that works! Oddly enough, it took some perseverance though. The first few times clicking those buttons didn't do anything, but now they work like Eclipse does.
