I created a scratch file named whatever.txt, put some formatted debug in it, now I want to attach it to an email to send to somebody, so I right-click the file tab and select Copy Path, which is like /Users/dave/Library/Preferences/PhpStorm2018.3/scratches/thing/whatever.txt
When I click the paperclip in my email compose, Finder pops up, yet I have nowhere to paste the path, pasting it in the Search box doesn't find it, and clicking my username on the left side of Finder shows no Library folder...
I'm confused, I don't know how to attach scratch files from PHPStorm because either the folder they're in are inaccessible to Finder or Finder is just inadequate for finding files in something as elementary as my Library folder.
If this is a Finder/Mac issue, can someone at least explain why scratch files are put in the Library folder as opposed to somewhere more accessible?
Yes I know I can copy and paste the text to a new file in another program (or in my project folder which is annoying); that's not the point. I don't see why scratch files should be inaccessible by Finder.
