Description crimcat 2008-05-27 15:40:19 UTC
Let's open any project which has several c/c++ files. Select a function in the code, then right click to select 'Find
usages'. In the opened 'Usages' window select one of the occurrences. Another source file with the selected occurrence
is opened in the editor in the proper location, but this file is not highlighted in the project pane. Instead of this
previously selected file is still highlighted. This behavior seems to be inconvenient in source code browsing.

When user opens two files in the editor then switches to the first one the same situation occurs. The second file is
selected in the Projects tab but the first one is opened in the editor. But in this case no one complains about wrong
behavior. The simple workaround is to call Select in Projects from the editor context menu (Ctrl+Shift+1).

it is a common issue.
reassign to evaluation.
Comment 3 Jan Lahoda 2008-11-19 12:06:41 UTC
