opening files in workspace tree view annoyance

Post by Gibbon1 » Thu Jul 17, 2014 4:17 am

I have workspace with a half dozen projects in it. They all share files. I'm building different embedded targets using mostly the same code base.

In the workspace panel there is the tree view that shows all the files in the project. I have issue where if I have the tree for a project expanded, and I double click on a file, the file is opened. However the tree view modified modified, the first node containing the file is expanded. (Exactly as if you went File->Open File)

Seems to me that if you open a file using the tree view the tree view should be left unchanged.
If you open a file using File->Open File then it should expand the tree view of the active project.

See attached png files for an example.

Its not an annoyance, its a feature, a one which "link" the active editor with the tree view.
If you look at the screenshot you posted, all you need to do, is to click the 'Link Editor' button to disable this behavior

On top of the tree view, there is a small toolbar with 4 buttons, click on the left one
