On a large project, Control-Shift-O takes up to 5-6 seconds or so to locate files. In comparison, Aptana offers the same
functionality (Apple-shift-R) and it is instantaneous, even on huge projects.
I think lots of developers use these shortcuts as the primary means of navigating around projects. Even though it seems
like a small detail, this is the key thing that's keeping me on Aptana instead of NetBeans.
On linux using a continuous build (13 Sept 2008) of 6.5 "go to file" is fast, even across multiple projects. Perhaps try
6.5 and see if that is any better, or maybe it is Mac specific.
It still takes a good 3 seconds on OSX under 6.5
Having this cached and instant pretty much means that you don't have to navigate by trying to locate tabs which is a lot
Definitely not just a Mac issue. On Windows I can make a cup of coffee in the time it takes to use this feature.... OK
its a tiny cup of coffee but coming from other IDE's that handle this much faster is painful.
For fast navigation (not using tabs) use the go to type instead of go to file Ctrl+O. That uses indexed information and
That will definitely help! Thanks for the tip. There are still some cases when i'd prefer to search for files (i.e. for
non-object based js and css files) but go to type covers 80% of cases.
