Navigation history is still broken ( IDEA-22870 issue )
Dear friend, who like me every day faces abnormal behavior of the navigation history buttons "back" and "forward" in IDEA! :x
IMHO You're right, that issue is really happens with us and it is not only a misunderstanding in our heads.
Navigation history is really broken and it was broken as long ago as early IDEA 8.x was released.
Now IDEA 9.0.3 has come out and the issue is still not fixed.
What the problem? It is: Neither a switching opened files wia tabs nor a changing cursor location within file text by simple clicking at some place in the text are stored in navigation history. Only sophisticated navigation operations (e.g. going to referenced object, search) as well as a switching files wia project tree are stored.
Due to the issue, while working with IDEA, one who uses swithing wia tabs constantly can't return back to previous file but returns to pre-previous one or pre-pre-previous one or so on. Damn it! X-(
Simplest reproducing is:
1) Reopen project with opened files (navigation history is clean at that moment)
2) One or several times switch opened files wia clicking on tabs. Also change cursor location within file text by clicking at different places in the text.
3) See that navigation "back" and "forward" buttons are still disabled so history is still empty :(. Hot keys ( Ctrl+Alt+Left , Ctrl+Alt+Right ) don't work too.
The issue has posted to bugtracking system with id IDEA-22870. And it's staying opened for 14 month. :(
Why they do that with us? ?:|
Today I say to myself, "Maybe JetBrains guys think there are too few people who consider the issue as a problem thus it's not a high priority task?".
To check I'm not alone I have started this topic and everyone can to say now, "Folks, It is really an irksome problem!". To say that just post to the topic something like "AGREE".
