Intellij IDEA – Add unambiguous imports as you type

One of my favourite settings in IDEA is to turn on the ‘Add unambiguous imports on the fly’ option.
With this on, if you type a class name, and that class is unique in the project libraries, IDEA automatically adds an import for that class. No need to stop typing to press ALT – ENTER.

So, I updated to IDEA 7 and found this wasn’t working anymore. Even more annoying, I couldn’t find this option in the settings. Turns out this setting has a new home.
In IDEA 7, it is has been moved to Settings|Code style|Imports.
