Pycharm Ido equivalent?

Coming from Emacs, I have become addicted to ido. Ido can do a lot of things, but one of the areas where it is most helpful is in file selection – I can press ctrl-x ctrl-f to open a file, start typing a fragment of the file name, and ido will show all the files that match. I can either type enough to make the choice unique, press enter to accept the currently highlighted choice, or press tab to cycle among the possible choices.

Is there anything like that for Pycharm?

Navigate | File... ?

Alas, in no way equivalent. Yes, I can get there, but I have to traverse subdirectories, etc. rather than typing a fragment and having the tool show me applicable options.

I'm not familiar with Ido at all (not a Python or Emacs user).

Could you please show some screenshots with how it works there and how it works in PyCharm (on the same code base / search string, of course)?

Ctrl+Shift+N (Navigate | File) will let you type in just the salient bits of the file name and provide you with a list of matches.  The new double-shift will do it too.  Both are more of a find-file-other-frame functions though..

Thanks, that is at least passably close. :-)
