How to check that Internal mode is ON

There are the following menu items: 

  • View | Tool Windows | Internal;
  • Tools | Internal Actions (Rider);




A line saying what "internal mode" is about would clarify a lot.


I'm currently using v1.6.2914 of Toolbox.  I do not see a "Custom options for Java virtual machine textbox."  I was able to enable internal mode by clicking the 'Edit Java Virtual Machine options' button and adding the referenced line to the vmoptions file.


Bcook Thanks for the notice, I have edited the article.


Yeah not sure if it's this: but agree, some sort of holistic reference system to documentation would be fabulous... trying to track down bugs with Rider is painful.
