Open file list sorting?

I have a PHPStorm project with over 30,000 files, and I use the File Open feature very frequently.  My question is this: is there a way to sort these based on precedence?  For instance, list PHP files first?  I inevitably end up with a mess of XML or other files I don't ever edit listed before the entity I'm looking for.  

I found one issue relating to ordering of files in this list, which doesn't appear to have moved anywhere in the past 19 months.

Hi there,

What exactly do you mean by "File Open".  Is it:

  1. "File | Open..."
  2. or "Navigate | File..."

For "Navigate | File..." you can use filter to list only files of specific file types (the filter/funnel icon) .. or just add extension as part of your query (e.g. "t.php" will list only .php files that have "t" in its name).
