    Could you guys also add refactoring for ES6 modules like:

    Promote to folder(eg. Component.js -> Component/index.js)
    Downgrade to file (eg. Component/index.js -> Component.js)

    • Elena Pogorelova

      Please feel free to file a request for this feature to youtrack,

      Note that there is “Generate index.ts /index.js” action (available via Help | Find Action) that creates an index file for currently selected directory

    Will the unified navigate to file/class/symbol / recent / everything popup seen in an earlier EAP ever make a comeback? Tried to find the corresponding ticket on your YouTrack but had no joy.

      You can enable it at Ctrl+Shift+/, Experimental features,
      (I hope this was not under NDA, you could find it manually anyways).

        Thanks Eugene! The hotkey didn’t work for me but found the dialog with `Search everywhere` :)

        • Eugene Morozov

          I’ve failed to type the shortcut in properly – in fact, it’s Ctrl+Alt+Shift+/, or Cmd+Opt+Shift+/ for macOS.

            Oh this is actually awesome feature, thanks for revealing!

          • Ali Alwash

            Awesome feature, I just enabled it!
            Thanks for the tip
