A lot of times I have a project I'm working on with numerous files. And I may have code files from other projects that I will be reusing, consulting, re-learning. The problem currently is that these files get put into the same buffer-switcher-dropdown at the top of jEdit. Even worse, sometimes the files will have the same name (although with diff. file paths). This becomes a mess an an inefficient way to work.

My suggestion is to allow opening a file only for a specific split view. So I could then have something like:

VIEW 1 | VIEW 2
~/dev/currentProject/Utils.java | ~/dev/oldproject/Utils.java
~/dev/currentProject/SomeOtherFile.java |
~/dev/currentProject/AnotherFile.java |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------| -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
public class Utils ...elided... | public class Utils ...elided...

(The top of the above is the buffer switcher dropdowns for each view in the split view)

This would make working with multiple projects, and even multiple components within one project MUCH easier, cleaner and more efficient.

    Sorry, the above is a bit of a mess. Basically, three files are open on the left and one file on the right.

    I think what you're looking for already exists in jEdit. Go to Utilities, Global Options, View, then select "editpane" from the BufferSet scope drop down. You might have to restart jEdit for this to take effect. Now you can open a file in one side of a split view that is not in the buffer switcher for the other side.

    Solved with editpane bufferset scope.
