Opening a File

This tip was contributed by Brian MacKay

You can open a file either:

  • by typing the name in the normal "find" combo-box on the toolbar, or
  • by selecting the filename as text within an edited document,
    and pressing <Ctrl>+<Shift>+G. If the file exists in the project or is "findable" using the normal include path mechanisms, the file will open for editing inside the IDE.
