Description initialzero 2008-02-08 22:02:31 UTC
It would be very nice to have an option to link the currently edited document window with the Projects and/or Files 
tree. It would be much easier to find the document's associated node in the project tree to have it automatically 
linked upon document edit.

For instance, when using control-click hyperlinking the newly opened document is sometimes difficult to find in the 
Projects tree.

Please think about including this feature. I'm sure I am doing a terrible job promoting it's addition, but it really 
could be useful.

I think this feature is already implemented, look at :
main menu : Navigate | Select in Projects/Files
Comment 2 David Simonek 2008-07-10 10:46:23 UTC
Yes, as mmirilovic said, it's already there. However Projects/Files window is not *automatically* synchronized with
edited document, which is what users are asking for I think. Leaving issue opened for tracking purposes.

Passing to projects...
