Working in PHPStorm while downloading project files

I hope somebody can help me with this simple question. We use phpstorm to work on multiple projects. We also have some remote projects too, which we set up in phpstorm. Now everytime we set up a new project it starts to collect files and download them afterwards. While it is doing this steps, we can't work in other projects because most of the functions not working while downloading the files.

Is there any way to work in phpstorm while another window / project in phpstorm is downloading files from a remote host? 

Thanks in advance.

Technically, you may just open a completely new project in a new window, configure deployment there (Build, Execution, Deployment | Deployment) and sync project files manually -- that should not interrupt other projects opened in different windows.

Thanks for your feedback. What i do is > Open a Project, then create a new Project from existing Files (FTP/SFTP/..) > enter all information and start to collect and download files. During this process, PHPStorm will not do anything else. I can't interact with the menu, nor do I have the possibility to open another project.

Is it only me having this issue?

In fact, it is a known behaviour that should be fixed in a forthcoming 2021.3:
