1. Need to be able to refresh individual file or selected files similar to Ctrl+Y. This functionality is crucial when working with mounted file system e.g. ClearCase
2. Don't delete from File->Reopen when path is not found. For remote users it creates an inconvenience when moving from office to home and vice versa.

I agree 100% with the second item. This happens to me all the time and is very inconvenient. IDEA could just gray out the links that are not working at the moment. Or at least show them again when they are available again.

This drives me nuts, too. I submitted an SCR back in the 3.0 days:
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=16969
(although it looks like I was a little tired when I wrote the description)

For 3.0.5 I ended up patching IDEA so that it would never drop a
project from the recent list.
For 4.x, I've put all my project files on a local drive to avoid the
problem.
That also got rid of the problem where IDEA would freeze on startup when
trying to access a ClearCase mount that wasn't available (just to check if
projects are around or not -- not a good idea, IMHO).

Vince.
