Moving big files using the IDE'S GUI hang

Whenever I move a very large file (in my case 10MB or above) into my project folder by drag n drop, the IDE freezes, and what I usually do 
is brutally killing Jetbrains' processes with the task manager and starting them again.

The reason for this is that the IDE tries to open the file I import, and being as that file is huge, the IDE just can't handle it and hangs.
Is there a setting where I can set the IDE to *NOT* open large files when dragged into the project?

When you drag-n-drop a file to your project, IDE should show a dialog with "Search for references" and "Open in editor" checkboxes. The state of the latter checbox is saved so you don't have to uncheck it each time.

Does it help?
