Description nedenom 2012-03-12 13:51:09 UTC
After performing a search or inspecting call hierarchy, double clicking on a file opens it in the output panel, together with search and call hierarchy results, instead of in the main panel with other source files.
Comment 1 Petr Somol 2012-03-14 10:45:17 UTC
Could not reproduce. Jan, please would you evaluate to reassign to whoever this might belong ?
Comment 2 nedenom 2012-03-17 20:38:09 UTC
Maybe something to do with imported settings from NB 7.0. I deleted my 7.1 profile directory and it seems to behave normally now. I just have to take the time to reconfigure NB all over again.
Comment 3 catweasle 2012-03-18 21:38:23 UTC
I have about the same problem.
If I am positioned in a run tab in the output pane and open up a source file by double clicking in the project browser,
the source file opens up in the tab in the output pane I was positioned in.
I also imported settings of my previous installation when installing 7.1.1.
I'm reopening this, not sure if I'm allowed to do that,
sorry if that's not polite.

same issue in Netbeans 7.2 beta build 201203120400
Comment 5 Michel Graciano 2012-03-28 16:41:34 UTC
There are a couple of settings for tab at Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Windows. Maybe 'New document opens next to active document' or something else?

None of these settings affect this bug. I also tested 'New document opens next to active document' to no avail.
Comment 7 adriaaaaaan 2012-03-30 09:23:51 UTC
I also have this issue Its soooo annoying!  I also upgraded from 7.0
Comment 8 Kkloe 2012-04-02 12:43:32 UTC
Same here, started happening after I made an call stack trace(not just that thou).
As I was doing several things it was hard to say what caused it. Tried to somehow reproduce this, no luck

Too fix it I had to do was go:
Window->Reset Windows

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.1 (Build 201112071828)
Java: 1.6.0_30; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 20.5-b03
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; sv_SE (nb)
Comment 9 Jan Becicka 2012-04-23 13:15:06 UTC
this is window system i hope
Comment 10 Stanislav Aubrecht 2012-04-23 14:25:52 UTC
Most likely caused by manually docking Output or Search Results or some other window by splitting the editor area. The Output window is then considered a document window and its docking spot is reserved for document windows - there are scroll left/right and drop down buttons in the upper right corner of that area.
Menu 'Window - Reset Windows' brings back the default state.

If that is not the case then please attach a screen shot and reopen, thanks.
Comment 11 nedenom 2012-04-27 09:36:09 UTC
I messed up the windows again... at least I know there is a Reset Windows command now. Still a nuisance though, to re-arrange to my preferences over again.

That explanation in previous comment is probably correct, but rather complicated and I cannot imagine a user wanting to achieve this on purpose. 

I don't know if this behavior is a side effect of general refactoring, but the way it worked in the previous version was fine, for me at least.

Resetting windows wokred for me in NB 7.2
Comment 13 localhorst 2012-11-18 20:49:47 UTC
I found a workaround by saving my cuurent configuration using the "Perspective" plugin. Check this post on Stackoverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12490730/can-i-save-my-window-layout-in-netbeans-7-2
Comment 14 strange_loops 2013-09-25 18:02:04 UTC
I had a similar problem in 7.3. Reset Windows worked as well.
Comment 15 ildar 2014-06-03 07:44:29 UTC
I have the same issue with right-docket debug windows

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.4 (Build 201310111528)
Обновления: Среда NetBeans IDE обновлена до версии NetBeans 7.4 Patch 3
Java: 1.7.0_55; OpenJDK Client VM 24.51-b03
Runtime: OpenJDK Runtime Environment 1.7.0_55-b14
System: Linux version 3.14.4-1-ARCH running on i386; UTF-8; ru_RU (nb)
User directory: /home/aim/.netbeans/7.4
Cache directory: /home/aim/.cache/netbeans/7.4

The 'Reset windows' works but it changes my window layout.

Perspective plugin does not restore right-docket windows.

Comment 17 tungsten 2015-06-15 06:49:13 UTC
Same is happening to me on Netbeans 8.0.2, on Windows 8.1  When you close all the windows the output's pane will maximize.  New or opening a file will sometimes put it in the output's pane.  I have not notice a pattern yet.
Comment 18 Sergey Grinev 2015-07-06 13:37:22 UTC
still reproducible on Netbeans 8.0.2 on mac
Comment 19 sneakyfildy 2015-07-22 12:57:53 UTC
Hello. Found a solution, seems like it is not a bug.

To fix drag open search ctrl+shift+F, perform search, now grab search tab header and drag it into an editor, to make be placed jsut like other tabs (with code, I suppose). Now right-click search tab header and select 'Float' in the dropdown. Voila.

post.replace(' drag', ','); // first entry

Aww, sorry :( doesn't help. That is something wierd.
Comment 22 kay_kay 2016-03-02 12:05:13 UTC
Can confirm that it still happens on Osx with Netbeans 8.1
Comment 23 kay_kay 2016-03-02 12:11:07 UTC
Selecting Window -> Reset Windows seems to fix this issue for now, the downside being it also rearanges all other windows to their default positions.
