Need easier way to find open editor from list [message #1703889] Wed, 05 August 2015 16:05 Go to next message

I routinely have many editors open at once and many of the files have duplicate names but are from different source folders. When you hover over a tab title of an open editor, you can see the full pathname to the file. However, when there are too many open files, the extra ones are shown in a dropdown selection list which only shows the short names of the files. This makes it very difficult to find the one I'm looking for.

Any way someone could add a hover over the selection list items to show the full pathname of the file like it does on the tab title?

Or is there another buffer list view available that would show open editors with full pathnames?

Thanks.

Try Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+E instead of Ctrl/Cmd+E (Switch to Editor vs. Quick Switch Editor).
