Tools Window - Structure not refreshing

Hi, I just recently upgraded from IDEA 7 to IDEA 8. When I am viewing a Java file, it is very useful for me to view the file structure in Tools Window - Structure. But in IDEA 8, whenever I open file Structure window, it doesn't show me the file I am viewing in Editor Window. Instead, it shows me another file's structure. This is very confusing. I am wondering if somebody else has the same problem. thanks!

Hello Jason,

Hi, I just recently upgraded from IDEA 7 to IDEA 8. When I am viewing
a Java file, it is very useful for me to view the file structure in
Tools Window - Structure. But in IDEA 8, whenever I open file
Structure window, it doesn't show me the file I am viewing in Editor
Window. Instead, it shows me another file's structure. This is very
confusing. I am wondering if somebody else has the same problem.
thanks!


This works correctly for me. Do you have any third-party plugins installed?

I don't have any third-party plugins installed.

one more observation: whenever Tools Window - Structure stops working, the Ctrl+Alt+Left, which took me to previous code I was looking at, stops working as well. This usually happens after I have used IntelliJ 8 for a while. I don't know what exactly triggered the issue.
