On the left side of the PhpStorm UI there is something called Favorites. How to add a file to it that does not belong to current project? e.g. I am working on a project, but I need to open other files often, that evidently do not belong to the project. Is it possible at all? Here is what I tried:
- File->Open Directory and I chose the directory containing my favorite file
- Open the directory in the Project window
- Right-click the file and add it to new favorites list named "test"
- File-> Open my regular project directory
The "test" favourite list is gone. Adding new "test" favourite list adds a new one, not that which I created above.
So, is it possible to add files from outside of the project to Favorites?
If yes, then maybe also another question: is it possible to copy favourite lists between projects? Because I have some really favorites, like e.g. httpd-vhosts.conf from apache directory and I need those files to be accessible in every project and it seems unproductive to add them again and again to every new project.
