How to remove/sort file types in the File -> new and right-click New dialog ?

Answered

 I get a bunch of file types that I do not use (typescript, coffescript etc) and the one I want is at the bottom.

Hi there,

Not possible at the moment

 

>right-click New dialog

What do you mean by "right click"?

Do you want to bring it via keyboard shortcut or what?

 

>and the one I want is at the bottom.

Just start typing while menu is visible/active -- Speed Search (in place filtering) works there as well.

Thank you for the reply.

Judging from the age of those tickets it looks like this will never be implemented.

I mean right-click in the project tree and select "New". No keyboard involved.

That depends on your OS and Keymap used.

But have a look at "File | New..." -- it will list your current shortcut there. Quite likely it will be "Alt + Insert"

NOTE: It is context-dependant action (e.g. works in Project View, Navigation bar etc). If you invoke it while in Editor -- you will see " Code | Generate..." instead (once again -- depends on Keymap/shortcut assigned).

Thanks,

probably I was not clear: I know the shortcut is alt+insert but I want to be able to also limit the choice of files appearing when using the mouse.

I see. Sorry for misunderstanding. Usually people asking other way around -- use keyboard only and leave the mouse on a side.

AFAIK it's not possible to put specific File Template into some custom place... and list of file templates is not customisable (unless you disable some of the plugins that provide some of these templates).

BTW -- what kind of template you wish to make "more accessible" -- custom one or bundled (provided by plugin).

Apparently bundled ones are now listed as individual entries .. so they can get custom shortuct or added to the context menu (e.g. "Plugins | JavaScript Support | JavaScript File" for that specific entry)

Awesome!

That does it. Thanks a lot.
