Exclusion list for Find-in-Path

On the Find-in-Path results pane, does the Exclude function do anything other than put a line through the nodes & content? I'd like functionality that allows me to add a file to a persistent list of files to exclude from Find-in-Path, much like compile. Still want the excluded file available in the editor and for other purposes... only excluded from FiP. If the current Exclude is just a momentary visual aid, I can add a JIRA request but wanted to ask first.

Thanks,
Jon

I see that Exclude has additional implications for Replace but none really for Find.

Hello Jon,

On the Find-in-Path results pane, does the Exclude function do
anything other than put a line through the nodes & content? I'd like
functionality that allows me to add a file to a persistent list of
files to exclude from Find-in-Path, much like compile. Still want the
excluded file available in the editor and for other purposes... only
excluded from FiP. If the current Exclude is just a momentary visual
aid, I can add a JIRA request but wanted to ask first.


Yes, the current Exclude list is just a visual aid for you to mark files
you've already looked at, or something similar.

In which cases do you need a persistent exclude list?

In my case, I almost always want to exclude generated code from Find-in-Path
searches. They're not in their own scope, but they do have a consistent
naming and some of them are in their own package.

Hi Dmitry,

We have some log files that are at the project root. I do want to see them in the editor at times but I don't want Find-in-Path results to include the log files as the logging isn't what one wants to search and the results get overwhelmed by it. I've moved logs elsewhere outside of the project root but IDEA doesn't seem to handle synching properly with external files. If it did synch properly, I'd still like the feature to selectively & persistently exempt from Find-in-Path. I added this feature request:
http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-24070

Thanks,
Jon
