View Scaladoc in browser

Is it possible to use `View -> External Documentation` with libraries that have a documentation jar with scaladoc attached? For me this option is always greyed out, while it is working with javadoc. I cannot imagine reason why this shouldn't work, since it is only necessary to extract the jar and open a browser.

It's here in YouTrack:
Unfortunately I don't know when we will be able to do it by ourselves.

As for internals of this task: ScalaDocumentationProvider should just implement correctly method getUrls and implement correctly ExtrnalDocumentationProvider interface. Moreover for Java it's implemented in JavaDocumentationProvider, so we just need to do very similar things for Scala. So it can be not really complex task for community, in case if this feature is important to have as soon as possible.

Best regards,
