"Find in path" improvements

Hi everyone.
I just want to put forward a couple of things that are easy to implement for you and that can save plenty of time to us :)
I went through the settings but I wasn't able to find what I'm looking for. If i might have missed something, well, sorry in advance :p

  1. add a checkbox to exclude paths that are not in the repository (ie. if you use the composer then you'll have some folders in your project that you don't want to exclude from your project because you're actually using those classes so you need the autocomplete suggestions but still you don't want to search through them because you'll never edit that code). so if I exclude a path from svn through svn:ignore phpstorm highlights those files and folders with a different color but it's not possible to exclude them from a search.
    1. Folder name filter (just below the "File name filter" would be great to be able to specify a path filter. what if I want to search only in files that are inside a "templates" folder?)

Thanks

Hi there,

Use scopes (especially if you do use such searches more or less often -- for one-time searching it is not really practical)

Thank you, scopes are really useful and they solved my first problem. They may solve also the other issue but it's kind of annoying creating a scope each time I want to narrow down a search just by the path name.
I think something like "Path mask" under the "File mask" field would be really useful and easy to implement.

Did you create a ticket @Francesco Casula?

I have a similar issue. I would *love* to be allowed to use the AWESOME scope filters as a file name filter, because yes - creating a custom scope for a (more or less) complex one time search feels "wrong".
