Permanently exclude folders from string search

Ist there a way to exclude certain folders from the global string search permanently (each time I use the search)?

I have for example a web project with a huge "node_modules" and a "vendor" folder, which I want to ignore from the project wide searches.


Hi there,

You can mark any folder as Excluded (e.g. via Context menu) and it will not participate in search anymore. Unfortunately it will also ignore it for many other operations (e.g. code completion etc).

Another partial alternative is to define custom scope and use it *every time* when you do such search.


That's what I pretty much currently do, to limit the scope of the search. Unfortunately it's each time reset when I open the search dialog.
