Open file on last edited place

I have a quiestion about opening a Java file. I have strong feeling that earlier it behaves in another way.
Now when you open a Java file (class, interface etc.) the cursor is set to the class name independently where the last edit place was. It is OK when you start editing a file that has not been opened before (no tab for this file).
However, it seems that earlier ot behaves like this: if a file has been edited before (there is a tab with this file), it is opened and the cursor is set to the last edited place.
So, the questions are:
1. Does the behaviour has been changed?
2. Is it possible to open already edited file on the last edited place? Personally I think that it is much more useful than open a file and put a user back to the class name.
3. If there is no such possibility or settings, can it be implemented in future versions?

Hi Andrey,
Do you possibly have a low, 1 or zero tab count limit in your settings?

I have 15 open tab limit.

Maybe I should specify that I mean 'open file from Project panel'

OK the reason I was asking is that this is a problem that has hit us
users who only have 1 tab open often when switching between files.

This general problem has been present throughout version 8 but not
fixed. It is marked as to be fixed in Maia, but as it hasn't been
addressed for a whole major version with numerous point releases I
wouldn't hold your breath.

Vote for it here : http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-31082

The bug is very similar to my description. Hope it will be fixed in Maia Final Release. It is just a bit irritating to scroll down a big class finding the last edit place.
In any case, you are right about the version. As far as I remember, I noticed this regression in version 8.
