Description borlak 2011-02-23 17:01:10 UTC
In large projects some folders may have hundreds of files, and many subfolders, which also have hundreds of files.

When attempting to find a file, just opening a couple directories with 100+ files will immediately fill up the Projects/Files view, and make scrolling quite difficult and cumbersome.  

Other editors I have used eliminate this problem by using a Directory or Explorer type view.  I will attach a screenshot with what I am referring to.

I guess this comment is either for PackageView (java) or for files view (projects/genericui). Assigning to the first one.
