Description Pere 2016-07-18 10:10:07 UTC
My computer has two screens. I use one for the main IDE window; in the second one I usually drag an open file and use it as a secondary editor. If, for instance, I duplicate (actually "clone", clicking with right mouse button on a tab) one and put each one of them in a different screen, but having them both open at same time, usually for looking at some part of source code while doing modifications in a different part of the same file, if I click on a function/method name in Navigator, I would expect to jump to that source line in the CURRENT active tab. Instead, it usually goes to that line... in the non-active clone of the file. This is a pity because if I "manually" activated on of the two clones was because I wanted THAT one for reading and the other one for writing, but this dismantles my plans.
