I would like to know if it is possible to use this dialog window filtered to just one scope. I find this very useful, but unfortunately frameworks have tons of files I never want to edit, and therefore its a waste of my time when they pop up in this search.

enter image description here

If it is not currently possible then what is the best method of requesting this feature from intelliJ IDEA?

  • Log in and create feature issue. Jul 10 '16 at 7:46
  • Actually PhpStorm mustn't add file from framework or external libs in this search if Include non-project files is not checked. Rather you add them in project on incorrect way. Jul 10 '16 at 7:49
  • I figured that might be suggested. But I want to use scopes because I can easily edit a scope and add more folders to a scope. Either way I'm using Laravel and I'd just like to be able to include like the public folder and the resource folder in this search bar. Jul 11 '16 at 22:07

Navigate | File doesn't currently support scopes. Please vote for IDEA-107386 if you miss this feature. Note that library files shouldn't normally be included in search if Include non-project files is off

  • Thanks for making me aware of the exact feature request. Is there any way to include several sibling files and folders in a project and add more as needed? Jul 11 '16 at 22:15
