"Save" button causing lock-up from Anonymous Apex / SOQL Query windows

Issue #1458 resolved
Corey Yeatman created an issue

Pressing the “Save” button to save some apex or SOQL from the tool windows is causing a lock up after selecting the folder, naming the file and clicking “Save” (or even “Cancel”). It is almost as if there is some ‘hidden dialog’ open somewhere as clicking anywhere on any open project sounds the ‘bell’ as though its got some modal dialog waiting for a response - but it's invisible. I’ve tried moving all of the windows out of the way in case its hidden, but can’t see anything. I don’t know what has triggered this to start happening. The only way to get it working again is to kill-off and restart IntelliJ Idea.

Unfortunately the idea.log reports nothing while doing this. The immediate workaround is to cut/paste text from these tool windows into another external editor and save it there. I will also try rebooting shortly to see if it comes right as a result of doing that.

    Corey, I'm unable to reproduce this. I'm using installed into IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 2019.2.4 on Windows 10. What OS and IDE version are you using when this happens? Can you grab the thread dumps from the same directory as idea.log from right after the lock-up- occurs?

    Hi Scott, I was using IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate 2019.2.3 on MacOS Catalina (10.15) - but I’ve just now upgraded to 2019.2.4 … and the problem has gone away 🙂

    I’ve had a look through the release notes for this version but can’t see anything really specific that says what it was.

    Never mind - all good now. Thanks for taking a look. I will close this issue.
