How Back and Forward works?

Hello!

Everytime I try to use Back and Forward navigation (Ctrl+Alt+Left and Ctrl+Alt+Right), I always get very surprised of places it takes me to.

For example, if I navigate to some method's declaration (Ctrl+Alt+B), and then from that method declaration I want to go back to the place where was before by Ctrl+Alt+Left (the previous cursor position at least), it takes me to a different file, which I have opened somewhere back in time. I can't even understand the file choice, as it is not on the top of the Recent files window nor Recent Changed files window.

WTF, sorry for my french...?

What version are you using? There's a bug in early versions of 10 that turn the Back and Forward buttons into the "I'm feeling lucky" buttons - especially if you had split editor groups. Supposedly its to be fixed in 10.0.3. See [1].

I use 10.0.2, so it is the latest version. Thanks for link to issue. Hope it will work fine then.
