Is it possible to enable history for the 'Find in Path' dialogue?

I'm working with a very large project that is often difficult to navigate.  I've found that 'Find in Path' helps immensely for navigating quickly, but it would be even faster if I could see multiple 'Find in Path' results at the same time, a la Notepad++.  Is there a way to do this in PHPStorm, or at least to be able to browse recent searches?  Adding a search to 'Favorites' isn't quite what I need, since I rarely want to repeat a single search from more than a day or two ago.

Hi there,

1) How do you use "Find in Path" functionality? What are you searching for? Maybe you can use other functionality instead (that may do such task better/more convenient)?

2) What do you mean by "history" exactly? All search dialogs do remember last 20 search terms (or so).

In any case -- you can pin search results tab so that new search will be opened in new tab (plus, the "find in oath" dialog has "open in new tab" option -- in the bottom right).
