Forcing IDEA to open bytecode file

I know IDEA can open .class files when it can't find the source, but how can I force it to open the .class file even having the source in my project?


Nope, can't find it. The class in question is an AspectJ .aj file that's got compiled into target/classes/. Now, compiled .aj's have more methods than the source files, so I need to inspect the .class and Ctrl+Shift+N is the first thing I tried, but IDEA simply doesn't see it on the classpath.


IDEA won't show you .class files from your sources but you may see the byte code via View|Show Byte Code from your source file. Please ensure that the Byte Code Viewer plugin is enabled.
