Description Christian Lenz 2014-03-21 09:17:44 UTC
As I see it in Chrome dev tools, when I open a file with Ctrl + o and than Ctrl + Shift + o to go to the method, it only works for the current open file. In Netbeans when I want to go to symbol (for my example in JS) I see all other available files in the other projects and that sucks. Maybe it would be better if we can have an option to set it on or off.

I know the Navigator but It will not shrink after searching for the right symbol, because sometimes it's to much inside it and then I have to use the arrow keys to navigate. The search disappears and when I want to search again, I have to open the navigator and hit the character. Not really intuitive I think. And yes I know the plugin from Geertjan Quick Member Search where the navigator is such decoupled window/floated window, but after navigate to the right method, the navigator doesn't appears. I would like to have the same functionality as in chrome. I think intelliJ has such feature its's called file structure and you can call it via Ctrl + F12, it's like the navigator but only a little overlay and it disappears after navigate to the method.

So I would prefer a new little overlay which is not a complete new window. It would be nice to have such little popup like the Generate dialog. I will have a look, maybe I can create such thing but it would be cool to have it natively in netbeans.
