Files open in unsorted order

Post by Seb » Tue Jun 06, 2017 2:20 pm

Sometimes, opening several XML files (via the "Project" view) results in these files being opened in random order. This means, that the tab bar of the editor window does not display them in the correct alphabetical order, even though these documents are sorted alphabetically in the Project view.

So far, I cannot reproduce this issue reliably, it seems to happen randomly only some of the times. Do you have an idea, what causes this and how to prevent this?

Hi,

What version and build of Oxygen are you using (Help > About)?

Note that the selected files are not opened in alphabetical order, they are opened in the order that the selection was made. Sometimes the order of selection can be erratic, if you selected them in several passes.
e.g. if you select files with Ctrl+click (or Cmd+click on OS X) in the Project view, when you right click on the selection and pick Open, they are opened in the order you clicked/selected them.

Regards,
Adrian

Hi adrian,

thanks for the hint with the selection. This may solve my problem. Otherwise, I will get back to you. (I'm using the most recent Oxygen 19 build).
