    Intellij IDEA: Importing a Gradle project

    1. IntelliJ IDEA by default has the Gradle plugin installed. If you have disabled it, go to FileSettingsPlugins to re-enable them.
      If your project involves GUI programming, similarly ensure the JavaFX plugin has not been disabled.
    2. Click Import Project (or Open or Import in newer version of Intellij).
    3. Locate the build.gradle file (not the root folder as you would do in a normal importing) and select it. Click OK.
      If asked, choose to Open as Project (not Open as File).
    4. Click OK to accept the default settings but do ensure that the selected version of Gradle JVM matches the JDK being used for the project.
    5. Wait for the importing process to finish (could take a few minutes).
