Complete Uninstall

Hi! Trying to troubleshoot an issue I am having with an MPS developed DSL (syntax is incorrect and the code doesn't build; see photo below) which consistently stopped working unexpectedly. I am attempting to fix this by doing a complete uninstall and was wondering if there was any data MPS stores on Mac OSX that is not removed by simply deleting the MPS application file? Thanks!

Hello!
Application settings remain intact on removing application.
You can find about settings folders for each OS here: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206544519-Directories-used-by-the-IDE-to-store-settings-caches-plugins-and-logs

To restore default settings on Mac OSX you need to remove one of this folders: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/configuring-project-and-ide-settings.html#restore-defaults

But before that, to fix your problem, you can try this:
1. Clean you project from all generated files, that are not under version control, and rebuild it.
2. Clean IDE caches by using action 'File -> Invalidate Caches / Restart...', what essentially will remove caches folder from IDE settings, but will leave intact all other user defined settings.
