Issues with Sorting/Order of Files within Project View/Explorer in WebStorm

Hi all,

Just wanted to open this up to suggestion.  I've lots of javascript files named according to their namespace and unfortunately they don't appear in WebStorms Project View in the logical order I expect them to.  Here's some examples of some of my files, their naming and the order in which they appear....

Common.Device.js
Common.js
Service.EventCapture.js
Service.js
Service.ResponseHelper.js

I understand why the Project View displays the files in this order because it includes the ".js" file extension when ordering alphabetically.  If the file extension was ignored however then the files would be sorted exactly as I expected them like so...

Common.js
Common.Device.js
Service.js
Service.EventCapture.js
Service.ResponseHelper.js

Does anyone think it would be beneficial to add a Project or IDE setting that would allow the user to chose whether the file extension is included or not in the sorting?  Clearly this problem doesn't just apply to javascript files but files of all type/extension.

Thanks for reading.
