I just opened a tiny 10 line php script in my home directory - it started "scanning files" and I guess it was trying to index every file within my home directory (mp3s, movies, uni assignments, other unrelated php scripts, ?) because it took forever and I had to killall -9 java. Not really what I expected from the "Open File". (Maybe it should say "Open File and Create Project")
Is it currently possible to open a file in PhpStorm (just a single file) without it creating a new project?
Would love to have PhpStorm as one of the "Right Click > Open With" options within the OS file browser.
I found this request but only 6 votes http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/WI-1816 . Surely more people have come across this issue? Is there another feature request I can vote for / existing forum thread that covers this issue?
Or is there a hacky work around like scripting phpstorm to launch an existing empty project and then fireing off the "open file" option?
