Can you please attach screenshot of the windows layout?

Did you re-arrange the windows?

You can also try calling Reset Windows from the Window main menu and see if it helps.

I can confirm Exilor's report. I did not rearrange the window layout. Installed 8.2, imported settings from 8.1, opened an existing Maven project, opened a Java class, selected a method, looked for it's usages, the list of matches appeared in a view below (as expected), but then when clicking on a line in the list of matches, the class containing the match opens in a tab next to the "Usages" tab, instead of a tab in the main code view above.

What does "resolved/incomplete" mean? Is a fix scheduled to be available for NB 8.2? Is it going to have to wait for 8.3/9.0?

Can anyone suggest a workaround? I get the feeling something's misconfigured in the platform virtual filesystem: would be nice if one could manually patch it up it until a proper fix is the meantime, not sure how to make use of 8.2. :\
