I have a web component FE project that uses Lit Element. Files related to the web components are placed within lib folders. I think that for this reason, I'm unable to search for patterns and also get the "non-project file protection" every time that I'm editing a file.
I've seen that a workaround for this is to play around with the "Project Structure" setting. For some reason, they don't show up in the settings tab.
What can I do about this?
