What 2 do? "Import IntelliJ IDEA Settings from:

After installing IntelliJ I got this "Complete Installation" popup on my screen where it's asking me where I want to import my IntelliJ IDEA Settings from.

I get two different options

  • Custom Location. Config folder or installation home of the previous version: /Applications

  • Do not import settings.

Which one do I go for? I've never installed IntelliJ before and my guts is telling me to go for the first option, but then - never done this before so I want to be sure.

If you've never installed IntelliJ IDEA before, there are no settings to import, so you would choose the second option.
