When I create a shortcut for git show changes all is ok inside a file or for a selected project. The git show changes or changes results window comes up with my changes. I undock it to get more size for my sourcecode and when I take a look inside the file with diff, the git changes window disappears, so far so good and now I can't open it with a new hotkey as for "Search Results". I have to execute the hotkey for "Git Show Changes". When the cursor is inside the current file and I execute the hotkey I only see the changes inside the current file, so I have to select the project and execute it again. Thats not very handy I think.
As you can see for the search results you can search smth and you can open the search results with two different hotkeys. For now its not possible to do it with the git (or version control) windows. This feature would be very handy.
i added an action opening the window without changing its focus. Please assign it a shortcut suitable to your needs and you can use it. Tools -> Options -> Keymap, Open Status Window under the Git category.
