Missing "Jump to Source" in Changes view

The Changes panel (Alt+F9) contains tabs Local, Repository and Incoming. In the tab Local you can use feature "Jump to Source" (F4). This feature is missing in Repository (and possibly Incoming) tab in the Changed files pane. I think it should be possible to press F4 to display the file in editor for the convenience. One more reason to add this feature is that the button Show History in the Changed files pane is enabled only if the file is displayed in editor.

And I think that the button "Show history" should be enabled independent of the file in editor. It's quite ridiculous now that you have to click to the editor to the exactly same file to get the button enabled.

Hello Steve,

The Changes panel (Alt+F9) contains tabs Local, Repository and
Incoming. In the tab Local you can use feature "Jump to Source" (F4).
This feature is missing in Repository (and possibly Incoming) tab in
the Changed files pane. I think it should be possible to press F4 to
display the file in editor for the convenience. One more reason to add
this feature is that the button Show History in the Changed files pane
is enabled only if the file is displayed in editor.


Which VCS are you using? The "Edit Source" button is enabled if IntelliJ
IDEA can correctly determine which file in your local working copy corresponds
to the repository file selected in the Changed Files panel.

There's also the "Open Repository Version" command, which loads the content
directly from the VCS and is always enabled, even if you do not have the
file in your working copy.

Ok, I am a bit confused. The way I described it was on Friday. Today when I have restarted the computer it works as you say. F4 works ok, button "Edit Source" is enabled. The history button is enabled as well independing of editor. 8-o
