Introduction

No need to double-click, simply select a file and it will be opened.

  • The opened file does not get the focus. Instead, focus stays back in the window where the click came from (Projects window, Files window, Favorites window). This gives you the benefit that you can navigate through your Projects window with your arrow keys and the focus will not change to the file that opens.
  • A fixed delay is added, from about 400ms, while the next version the aim is to make it configurable, so that you can navigate through the Projects window with your arrow keys and no files opens instantly.
  • An open document is reused while navigating through the Projects window. If you set the focus to an open document and go back, a new editor tab will be created.

New version available for 8.2, with enhancements.

Install the plugin again and thanks to Chris and Benno you'll have some cool new enhancements, including a time delay and focus staying in the view instead of in the file.

Select file OR folder

Ok, I understand it, but it is confusing because here, in your description you said this: To be able to close an open file, select a different file or a folder. But when I select a new file, a new file opens and the other one is still open, as you describe it in your blog. So you said it's possible to close a file by clicking an other file OR folder. I would prefer the same behaviour as for Sublime Text. Thx for your feedback.

Select a folder

If you want to be able to close the file you opened, just select a folder (i.e., a folder doesn't have an Openable in its Lookup), after which you can close the file as usual. Read about the plugin here: https://blogs.oracle.com/geertjan/entry/one_click_open_sesame

It will not closing the file unfortunately

I click with one click on a file, the file opens, when I select an other file, the old file is still open.

It will not work, if I select a file and hold shift or ctrl + space and it will not work, when I use Go To File.


Regards

Chris
