Hi all,

I am using a custom IDE based on Eclipse version: 4.7.3.

I have my views grouped into three separate panes (or a grouped notebooks of tabs, as it is called in Eclipse help):
1. Project Explorer
2. Console / Call Hierarchy / Search
3. Opened files

Whenever I open a new file, I want it to open in the 3rd pane every time. And this is how it worked for me before, but recently the behavior changed.

Now, the file opens in the recently active pane. That is:
- If I open a file from Project Explorer view, it opens in either 2nd or 3rd pane (depends which one I click before)
- If I open a file from Search view, it opens in another tab of the same pane (i.e. next to the Search tab, and not with other files!)

Could someone please advise me what's going on?

Editors should always open the editor area so this seems like strange behavior. Perhaps try resetting the perspective via the context menu on the perspective toolbar button in the upper right.
