The uses of "intend" (verb) and "intent" (adjective) are very tricky.
Both idioms below are correct(1) Intend + to do something
--> "Intend" is VERB(2) Intent + on doing something
--> "intent" is ADJECTIVE
* intend (verb) + on doing
* intent (adj) + to do
--> wrong.Rule of thumb is: Verb + to do;
Adjective + on doing.
