Using Scopes to search for non-Java files?


This is somewhat basic question for which I couldn't find an answer:

how do I search for non-Java resources in a project? For example, I have a big project with multiple reasonably large modules and I want to search which all places xyz.jar located. I'm setting up scopes which allows me to search for say all jars but I want to search for specific files.Find in Path seems to return instances of text strings but thats not what I want.

Thanks in advance,

ctrl+shift+n (or menu "Go To"->"File")

after typing file name you'll see a drop list
in this drop list you can see file name and IDEA module containing it
you can press enter to open file or ALT+F1 to navigate this file in "Project View"
