what's mean of "Pin"?

Answered

I select a editor panel and select "Pin" it. and select "close all". All editor panel are closed.
I think the "Pined" panel shouldn't be closed, am i right? Or the "Pin" has another meaning?

Pin means that when you click back into the editor, or another part of the program, the tool window will stay where it is. Otherwise it will hide itself automatically.

Sorry, I misread your question. I thought you were talking about pinning tool windows, not editor windows. I don't know what pinning an editor window does, but I would guess it would mean that it will not be closed automatically (if the number of tabs goes over your choice for the Tab Limit setting in the Editor preferences).

When tab limit exceeded then pinned editors will not be closed.

There is a related request :
option to make editor(s) "Close All Editors (But..)" resistant.
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=5557

, that was erroneously tagged as duplicate of a closed feature.

Last time this happened to me after a month of waiting I just posted it
again, with wording slightly revised so that it would be immediately
obvious it wasn't a duplicate. Worked for me :)

Not the ideal solution, but the JetBrainers can be a bit slap happy with
the dupe tag, understandable with so many issues to wade through.

You should look at the way Visual Studio does it. I like it a lot more.

When a file is pinned it goes to the leftmost tab.
Pinned tabs won't close unless unpinned.
