Sometimes it would be useful to have feature 'fill in selected identifier' in go to symbol dialog. It would fill the selected identifier, so the user needn't to write it whole manually 

Current Use case:
- user wants to see all elements of class in his project
1) open go to symbol
2) type whole name of the class
3) type .*

With suggested feature the step 2 can by replaced by
2) type part of class name, select by arrows and press 'Fill in'
