Separate projects in separate threads

We at our company have same projects set up both locally and remotely. Of course the remote projects are very slow in IDE, we understand that and almost never use them (one of exceptions is phpunit tests debugging on server). But sometime when someone needs to make some changes in a remote version through the PHPStorm while keeping the local project open the IDE starts re-indexing files effectively freezing both of them. We have to wait till it unfreezes and in many cases kill the IDE to regain access to a local version of the project. I am wondering if there is a plan to let users run projects in separate threads? That would help mitigate the aforementioned issues.

How naive :) There are already tens of threads inside IDE, with quite a sophisticated load management system :)

Anyway, the low-latency project storage medium is a requirement. You shoud really set up a local cop with auto sync to avoid this.

Hmm, my bad, I meant processes not threads, so the question remains open I guess.

Just run one more instance of IDE. You'll need to tweak configs though..
