Find in "Whole Project", directory structure!?

I am using Intellij Idea 10 and just noticed that I cannot find how I can arrange the list of FILES found when performing a search into a directory structure... so I can easily see the search usage in those directories I am interested in ( in charge of and have been coding up )

I believe this was available in version 9... am I wrong? How do I enable this ?? I have an icon that says Group by file structure but that does nothing.. perhaps there is a bug here, where it should toggle between directory structure and back?

I will try to restart the editor to see...

Cheers, Hamidam

Hello Hamidam,

Grouping the list of files by directory is controlled by the "Group by package"
button. The "Group by file structure" button enables grouping by elements
within the file (such as classes and methods).

I cannot find any Group by package button. There is a group by module one, ( Rails development? ) but that doesn't do much. It will toggle to add the root project dir at the top, but no more "modules" or directories.

Again, rather than relying on language ( I am guessing the Group by package will turn up in Java development ? ) you should have a non-language specific "Group by directory".  I am saying this because I cannot find a "Group by package" buttton, but a "Group by module one" which is basically useless.

Hi.

Related issue http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-48413 was fixed in 10.0.x branch. 10.0.2 release should include the fix.

Regards,
Alexander.
