Description robin2 2007-12-07 09:38:54 UTC
The structure of a Rails app means that there will be several files with the same name, but in different directories.
For example several /view files called show.rhtml. If you have more than one of these open at the same time (which is
useful for copying code between them) it can be hard, or impossible, to know which edit window relates to which file. Te
problem is even more pronounced if you have a number of Rails projects. It would be useful if the editor could show
which file was which - perhaps a balloon with the full path name could pop up when you run the mouse over the tab?
Another possibility might be to colour-code the tabs and have matching highlights on the names of the open files in the
Project window.
