Does find in path ignore *.iml files

Hi.

I'm trying to use Find/Replace in path on some *.iml that **are** under my project.
But it seems that tehy are ignored.
C+F does find the specific pattern but Ctrl+Shift+F does not.
Other types of files in the same location work properly.

Why should I search in *.iml files - because I need to do some Refactor-ing that IntelliJ does not support - Moving *.iml files.

Currently I need to do it using other editor  :(

(I'm using IntelliJ with JRE 1.7u4)

Thanks
Boaz

So, Is there a way to move .iml file ?

What do you mean with 'move? Do you want to move the whole module to a new physical location?

Well, We have about 100 modules in our project.
All are under <poroject-dir>/modules

In the process of splitting to components we want to rearrange our *.iml to separate directories:

<poroject-dir>/modules/

component1/

m1.iml

m2.iml

...

So, Yes, We only want to move the *.iml files - not the module content.
This means that we need to manually fix the relative content root in the iml file.

Thanks
