Quickly search and find in a document and structure tab?

Something similar to Sublimes Command+P (Goto Anything) tool. I know i can use find, but that's too cumbersome. I'd like to be able to press a key combo and start typing a ID, like "#buttons" go straight to the code. Maybe search the document I'm on first?

Also, anyway to filter the HTML in the Structure tag (and have the IDE remember the filter, so next time I don't have to set it)? The HTML hirearchical view can get ridiculos if you dealing with large HTML/JS ocuments.

Hi Stephen,

1) Have you tried Navigate | Symbol... ? But it's global (whole project). For local -- "Navigate | File Structure" -- start typing and it will filter results.

2) You can search in visible branches (but if that branch is collapsed, then you will not find it) but not filter. Plus it will be reset when displaying structure of another file.

But, you can filter in Structure popup (Navigate | File Structure (Alt+F12))

A handy tool. But it seems to only work with PHP. So if i want to quickly move to an ID tag, it doesn't find it.

Works for me. How do you search? I guess #someid ? -- try without hash, just someid

Doesn't work for me. Searching for ID tags in a PHP document, I'm talking about. It might work in straight HTML. But most of my pages are mixed (with JS too). If I press, Command + F12 (Navigate/File Structure on Mac) and search for an ID, I see php variable,s class, methods (etc) come up as I type that are similar. But nothing from HTML at all.

I see -- then I guess Ctrl+F (normal plain text quick find) is the only way to go for searching in the same file...
