Description Marian Mirilovic 2004-06-21 13:32:39 UTC
[nb_dev](200406201800), [jdk1.5.0](b51)

If node can't be found, there is no info about it
and nothing happend. 
UI specification contains spec for handling this
status with Error Message :
If for some reason the document node can not be
found after invoking the the action, the closest
parent that could be found on a path to the node
is selected and a message "The document node
couldn't be located." is shown in the status line.

I've reported the same against Favorites (issue 45466)
Comment 2 jrojcek 2004-06-23 14:16:32 UTC
First of all, the action should be disabled if selected document can't be located in Projects/
Files window. The error message should only be used if it is not possible to decide 
whether the document has a node in Projects/Files window or not.
Comment 3 Petr Hrebejk 2004-06-23 14:24:59 UTC
No sure what you exactly mean. But notice that finding out whether the
node can be found in the tabs may be a bit time consuming to do it in
each call of isEnabled or when the global Lookup changes. So rather do
not plan to have it disabled.

Sure, I don't count on it ;-), but...

* could it be disbled if the user starts up the IDE for the first time and there is no project 
open and only Welcome screen in the document area?
* or if a file doesn't belong to any project?

BUT it doesn't work in Favorites (issue 47832) and Versioning (issue
