hope idea can support wildcard support with find in path operation

as same as the title, the regular option is not very convenient, hope "find in path" can support wildcard such as * and ?, so we can use "insert into*document" as the text to such


I personally would not want this unless it was a separate option that can be turned on and off. The reason being, I may very well want to a search for something where a * is a * and not a wild character. For example, I may want to search for "select * from my_table". I suppose you could make it so wild characters have to be escaped. But then that adds a layer of complexity if one is doing a search on a copy & past string.

I'd also ask, is entering  "insert into.*document" (as a regex) that much harder to enter? After all, it is simply an extra dot character.


separate it as a option may be is a better way.


I'd recommend you open a feature request -- http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA -- if it is something you are interested in.
