List of files in a project -- without using the Project Tool Pane Follow
I have selected to use NO TABS in my workspace. I know that when I open the Project Pane, I can see all files in the current project.
But, is there an icon or perhaps something else that I can click on that will give me an immediate list of files in the current Project so that I can select another file?
When I was using tabs across the top, there was a small "<>" in the upper right that I could click on to view a list of all files in the Project. However, with Tabs = None, that is not available.

ctrl+shift+n and just start typing the name of the file you want.
Great video on it here:
the "Finding files like a pro" video.
Alternately in the bread crumb navigation to the file you are currently working on, you can click on any of those to see the directory
my-site.com -> modules -> apSomeModule -> file.php
you can click on any of thoses folders to see what is in them.
Great, thanks for the information and the URL, Michael. I did not know about the ctrl-shift-n to select a file. Works great!
I found it hard to get away from using the mouse and focus on using the keyboard, but these are some other things that i use a lot now:
when im in the editor and want to open the projects pane to the file that im working on:
alt + F1 then 1 (but im on kubuntu so i first had to disable the alt+F1 from opening the system memu)
when I have 3 or 4 files and points that im working on using ctrl+shift+1 to set the first point im working on, then go to a different place in the same file that im interested in and use ctrl+shift+2 sets another book mark, then go to a different file and a place im interested in and do ctrl+shift+3. This will set book marks in the margin which i can jump quickly to by doing ctrl+1 to go to the first, ctrl+2 to the second, ctrl+3 to go to the third. This is really useful. It will open the file if the file is not open.
and the ctrl+enter to finish off my half finished statements is useful too.
and of course the ctrl+space for code completion.
Im really liking it. Im keeping an eye on the forums too, because i still feel like there is more power in the IDE than I am fully using right now. Love to know any tips/tricks you find for a great workflow. :)
Those tips are helpful also. You're way ahead of me on the UI shortcuts. Appreciate all the help!
awesome! didn't know this.
