There is no option to to find property usage in the "Project Libraries", is it possible to have "Project Libraries" option always available for any Alt+F7.

Hello Vladimir,

By definition, the relationship between "project" and "libraries" is that
the code in the "project" references "libraries", but the code in "libraries"
can never reference the code in the "project". Because of that, the option
to search in libraries is shown for any element type if the element itself
is in the libraries and not in the project.

There is no option to to find property usage in the "Project
Libraries", is it possible to have "Project Libraries" option always
available for any Alt+F7.

Dmitry,
Thanks for your reply.

This is entirely correct from the design point of view, but not from the IDE point of view, while working on the huge project in the financial organization many components (maven modules) developed/maintained by different teams cross reference each other, IDE simply cannot include all of them in the project (just becomes slow), but still there is a need to find if particular property from one module is referenced by other with is not part of the project at the moment. Libraries in this case are not necessarily 3rd party components but rather modules not included in the project
