Tag/block navigation

I was just about to post this as a feature request but thought I should ask the forum first to see if the feature already exists. Wouldn't be the first time IDEA surprised me:)

When you place the cursor at a closing tag or closing bracket of a block and the opening part of that tag or block is not visible in the editor, IDEA show a popup of the opening line. I would like to be able to click on that popup, or have a keyboard shortcut, to navigate to that line.

Hmm. That works really good with blocks(i.e. - {,},(,)) but it doesn't seem
to work with HTML tags or jsp tags.

p.s. - Using build 2013 on WinXP Pro

No, I guess it doesn't. The only tags I remember it working with are the XML ones.

It's always frustrating when dealing with JSPs and lots of the nice things you came to depend on in IDEA stop working... Let's hope the future versions will enhance the JSP editing capabilities and make working with JSPs as pleasurable an experience as working with java files.

Hi,

If it works in XML and you want in in JSP then, please, make a tracker
request.
