Strange editor behaviour.

I'm found my custom editor's work a little bit strange.

I'v created ny own
FileEditorProvider, and it works good. When I open a file in project idea opens my editor.
But if I left some unclosed files, at next start, Idea won't create custom editor, it uses default one.

If I close this file, and reopen it, I will see custom editor again.

Can this happen due because of some time lag between Idea startup and file opening, and plugin initializaton?

Because I'v noticed, during "Indexing", I can open only default editor. and when It done - reopening file shows custom editor.
How can I manage It, may be programmatically reopen all editors, after provider registering?  If so, how determine corect timing, correct moment to do so?

I would be grateful for any idea.

If showing your FileEditor does not require access to indexes, you should implement the marker interface DumbAware on your FileEditorProvider. This will fix the behavior you observe.
