Accepted answer

You can force SBT to reload changes: Open SBT toolwindow (on the right side of IDE) and press refresh button.

If you use auto-import feature you need to save your file to force auto-refresh.


Ticket for broken plublication of sbt.jetbrains is resolved. Updating scala plugin will fix this issue Ticket :


Perhaps this working only for some kind of projects, but in my case,

on the Library side, I do in sbt: publishLocal

on the Client side where the Library goes into, I click the menu item Build -> Build (Ctrl-F9), and sometimes, when open Files or Intellisens are not yet current, I do Ctrl-Alt-Y (Menu item File -> Synchronize) to get the file reflecting the refreshed code base.

Not having to refresh all sbt projects is faster for me.


This may be due to a broken publication of org.jetbrains:sbt-structure:latest.integration that occurred tonight, about 4 or 5 hours ago. Given that your post is 4 hours old ...

You can see the ivy activity in idea.log (~/Library/Logs/IntelliJIdea13 or ~/Library/Logs/IdeaIC13 on OSX).

I have opened a ticket at JetBrains.


As of 7 Dec, 2013, the issue is solved. You need to update the Scala plugin in IntelliJ IDEA (this applies to both community and ultimate editions).

This is the link to the issue opened on JetBrains developer community web site:


IF plugin gets 'stuck' it helps to invalidate cache (under file menu) and restart intellij.
