Favorites - usage

I'm checking out at Favorites for the first time and not sure whether it has issues, so maybe someone can help clarify. If I add a class to a Fav and then add a method of that class to Fav, why doesn't it show those 2 hierarchically? I assumed it would want to nest Favs like that.

Is Favorite's Show Members broken for classes? Only one of my classes shows members in a Favorites list of 3 classes although all have members. Then when I took that class out and put it back, I can't get Favorites to show members again. Others see this?

You don't need to add method to Favorites if you want see it under class
which is already in Favorites - just 'show members' and you will have your
hierarchy.

Are you sure that you add class (not file) to Favorites?

Thanks.

Okay. Why do you not show the class using the Java file icon rather than class icon when it is the file? I can add both and there is no visual distinction in the icon. Also, it isn't clear under what circumstances a class gets added as a file versus a class.

You don't need to add method to Favorites if you want
see it under class which is already in Favorites -
just 'show members' and you will have your
hierarchy.


I thought it would be more intuitive to have the separately added fav class and its fav method show nested even when 'show members' is off. Does it make sense?

Also: currently[1], when you dblclick on a favourite class, the file
opens, and the cursor goes to the declaration of the class. It would be
more preferable to just open the file with the cursor where it was
previously.

= I didn't check last build.
