"Browse to" not always working

    Has anyone experienced this?  I routinely use the "browse to" function in Boa by holding down Ctrl and hovering over a function, and then once it is underlined one can click and be brought to the line where that function is declared.  But lately I've found it doesn't always work.  It will show the underline, but when I click, nothing happens.  Seems to happen more often than not at this point.

    Any explanation for this?  (It's such a convenience that it is a shame to lose it).  Thanks.

    Good morning Chelonian,

    I don't see any problem with that function on Windows 7 and it works fine for me on Ubuntu too.

    Can you see any pattern on when it does not work for you?

    Yes. It tends to happen if the module that contains the function/variable has not been imported yet.
    It almost never happens if the module in question is open in the editor and the importing module has been run at least once.
    Hope that helps,
