Scala Class not found


I have installed intelliJ with Scala already. However, when I right-click on src file to create a scala class, it can't be selected. Please let me know how to deal with this problem.

Would also like to know how to solve this? andi mitre

Once you update to IntelliJ 2017.1 ... it's even worse to try and start a Scala project to match the tutorial.

I'm having the same problem.

I think I found the answer on StackOverflow. "Right click on src > Mark directory as > Sources Root" https://stackoverflow.com/questions/38006735/unable-to-create-scala-class-on-intellij

Right-click on src. Select new Scalar class. When it asks for a new filename change object to class on the drop-down menu.

As of today 11/11/19, IntelliJ is an exercise in frustration.

After opening the project, I had to right-click on the src folder and "Open Module Settings."

On the right-hand side of this window, I had to left-click on the blue "Source Folders" path that says "src/mail/scala."

Then, to create the Scala object, I had to right-click on that particular folder... src/main/scala to create the SuperHeroes object.

Time to fix this content.
