Suggestion to Improve Scratch File Selection

I love the new scratch file feature, but it is a bit of a pain selecting from the long list of file types when I really only use 2: Text and XML.
Maybe if Intellij put the most used X file types at the top in a separate section, and another section with all the types in order like now?

I'm not sure what version you are using, but I do notice in the latest v14 EAP (build 139.144.2) that my last used types are at the top of the list. I'm not sure what the limit is, but I am seeing the last three at least. I'm not sure when this might have been added. If you want something additional, I'd recommend you open a feature request ( for it. A formal feature request is far more likely to get some love and attention than a forum post ;)

Also, in case you are not aware, you can use inline search (just start typing) to narrow the list down. A bit easier than using the mouse.
