The best place to ask programming/development questions, imo. UPDATE: stackoverflow is the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but a great reference for finding answers.

phpstorm automatically select/show current/selected/open file in project list, like eclipse's "linking the Project Explorer view to the active editor"

when i select a file in the phpstorm editor view, i want to automatically see where it is in the project view list.

here's how you do it (in mac osx):
* make sure the project view is visible: cmd+1 or View > Tool Windows > Project
* click the settings icon (cog wheel) in the project view > select Autoscroll from Source



references:
PhpStorm 8.0.2 Help/Project Tool Window

Autoscroll from Source
"If this option is on, PhpStorm automatically navigates from a file in the editor to the corresponding node (file, class, field, method, etc.) in the Project tool window."
