Dropdown for function names list

I can reach function name list of a source file by Structure tool window, or I can search functions by Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N.
Is it possible to reach the function names from a dropdown menu?
It won't take too much space from the screen.
Thank you

Hi ben,

What dropdown menu? Where?

Why you do not like existing options? What is wrong with them (Structure panel in particular)?

Have you tried Navigate | File Structure (kind of mix of Structure panle & Navigate | Symbol) ?

@Andriy thank you for reply.
I don't like Structure because it takes too much space from the window.
Even I use it as colon in side, or when i open it from the down status bar, it takes too much space.

File Structure is a cool feature. Very easy to reach a function by typing its letters.
It is beneficial if user has 20-30 functions in a file.

Most of the time i don't need to see all methods in file, I only need to go to method that i know by name.
That's a habit comes from Visual Studio IDE :)

Hi ben,

OK, now I see what drop down menu you mean.

No -- PhpStorm has nothing like that. I guess the best option for you would be already mentioned File Structure popup.

I returned back to Defualt keymap to check Ctrl+F12.
When i go by Navigate >> File Structure
it's OK.

But I can reach File Structure window by pressing Ctrl+F12 two times.
When i first press Ctrl+F12, whole line becomes selected.
And sometimes pressing second time to Ctrl+F12 opens Structure Tool Window, and sometimes File Structure window.
Is it normal, or somethings that i do conflict?

Works fine here. Possibly it conflicts with some another plugin .. or you do have some app that listen to that shortcut globally.

In any case --- go to Settings | Keymap; click on funnel-like icon and press required shortcut -- it will list all actions that have it assigned.

I would love this to. I also prefer to not have an additional panel an would rather have a drop down that lists out method names.

7 years later and there is still no tiny, low ui footprint method ddl, yet there was time for someone to add the stupid main menu merging into the title bar.

Don't mind it being about Java, if it's implemented for Java PHP and JS would also have it.
