Description belur_1d 2006-10-13 07:53:02 UTC

Looks like currently there is no way to view a current open file in 
files tab window...

i.e right click (for eg) on Opened File tab in UI and there is no way
for user to locate where exactly(in which folder/package) it is in
files or projects tab window.

This feature will be very useful....
Please consider it...

Basically it should highlight that file in left panel tab window...
(in the tree or list view)

Actually we alrady have this feature :
Select in Projects, Files, Favorites

All these three actions are available from Navigate main menu. If you are
looking for someting else, please be more specific.

It's done
Comment 3 belur_1d 2006-10-13 10:52:22 UTC
I dont think you understand...

Let me elaborate...

1>Open say 5 Files from different packages .
2>Now For the First File I want to see the file
in File Tab/project tab...Lets say be right click 
on File Name(Opened File..First File) Tab and click
some action like "Show In File Tab" for example

See the problem currently is If i have quite few files
open, to select the first file in Left Panel , I have 
to search again ....

I knwo its nothing great..point i am trying to make is
if i have many files open then I have to keep scrolling 
in File Tab to search for it.

A simple "select in File tab" will fix this issue..

Passing to projects, I think that "link with editor" feature would solve this - always have edited file also selected in
projects/files view.
