project files outside modules are invisible for IDEA features

We have project structure like this:

/.idea/...
/module1/module1.iml
/module2/module2.iml
....
/moduleN/moduleN.iml
/data/files/...


IDEA svn-client can't see changes in /data/files, nor "fast open file" feature can't see these files, and they are not visible in Project View, and so on.

How is it possible to add these files under IDEA project, if they are not module-specific? There are evident way, to create fake module, but may be there is more straightforward way.

Thanks!

Hello Ivan,

There is no way other than adding a module.

We have project structure like this:

/.idea/...
/module1/module1.iml
/module2/module2.iml
...
/moduleN/moduleN.iml
/data/file/...
IDEA svn-client can't see changes in /data/files, nor "fast open file"
feature can't see these files, and they are not visible in Project
View, and so on.

How is it possible to add these files under IDEA project, if they are
not module-specific? There are evident way, to create fake module, but
may be there is more straightforward way.
