I recently moved from version 11 to version 13, and one thing I've run across which is a pretty big loss of functionality (I believe) is that Find in Path used to enable you to search any arbitrary path and find a string. Now, however, it will only find items in paths which are part of the project.
For example, given this set up:
In Intellij 11 (and earlier, I've been doing this a long time), if I were working on MyProj, I could do Find in Path, and if I selected /src as my path, it would find the string in files in both MyProj and SomeOtherProj. However, in Intellij 13, it seems to only find the string in files in MyProj, even though I know the string is also in files in SomeOtherProj.
Is there an option to restore the previous behaviour? It was *hugely* useful to be able to search some other files without having to add them to my project, or to open up 4 or 5 other projects in order to be able to search through their various files. Given that I also have the option to restrict to things like "Whole Project" or "Project Files", etc., it doesn't seem like enabling search of other arbitrary directories is preventing someone from searching just the files they want to search.
Thanks very much for any help!
