is there a way to limit the history to per project

PhpStorm: PS#107-592

currently during the course of a day I open different projects.

I will be in PROJECT 1 and use the ctrl+shift+f  (find in entire project) and do several searches throughout the development time.

Then switch to PROJECT 2 and do some searchs also using the ctrl+shift+f  (find in entire project).

If i then switch back to PROJECT 1 and do ctrl+shift+f then hit the down arrow to see the history of searchs I will see the history of searches for PROJECT 2.

/path/to/PROJECT2/some_searched_directory/

Is there any way to limit this to just the searches for the project because when I switch between the projects, that down arrow history is useful  but while in PROJECT 2 there is no-way i would ever need to search on a folder from the PROJECT 1 system.

PROJECT 2 workspace should keep a history of the ctrl+shift+f paths for PROJECT 2 and
PROJECT 1 workspace should keep a history of the ctrl+shift+f paths for PROJECT 1.

Is there a setting to make it work this way?  Thanks

Hello michael,

The search history stores in application state component and it is hardcoded behaviour. Though I agree that it should be per project.
Please submit an issue - http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/WI#newissue=yes

Thank you for feedback!
