Description _ gtzabari 2011-09-26 16:04:48 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201109250601)
Java: 1.7.0; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 21.0-b17
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)
User directory: C:\Users\g.tzabari\.netbeans\dev
Cache directory: C:\Users\g.tzabari\.netbeans\dev\var\cache

1. Using the keyboard, select a Java file in Projects tab (that is not already open in the editor).
2. Hit ENTER
3. Notice that the keyboard focus remains in the Projects tab. In previous versions, focus used to move to the newly-opened file.

It's not clear whether the new behavior is by-design or a regression. I believe the behavior changed sometime during the past 2 weeks.

It was reintroduce in previous dev builds, but it should be fixed. 

It works for me

Java: 1.6.0_26; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.1-b02
