Track active/open item in Project Explorer

Hi,
I'm quite new to IntelliJ (9.0.1 Community Edition) and I wonder if there is an option to focus/track the currently opened file/item in the Project Explorer on the left part?
In Visual Studio 2008 I found the option "Track active item in solution explorer" very useful (see http://blogs.msdn.com/jannemattila/archive/2009/02/21/visual-studio-2008-track-active-item-in-solution-explorer.aspx).
Thanks,
Jan

Hello Jan,

Press the "Options" button in the project view toolbar and enable the "Autoscroll
from source" option.

I found this page while searching how to enable tracking active item for WebStorm, so decided to make a comment. I eventually found it in this menu item:
