#680 Folders and Bins Cannot Be Selected

2: Annoying

Folders and bins (e.g. [ Source Files ]) cannot be selected in the tree navigator. Instead, the selection jumps back to the previously selected document node.

This is particularly irritating when pressing the right mouse button to display the context menu for folders and bins: The correct context menu is displayed, but underneath it the tree jumps back to the document that was selected before. It is unclear whether the context menu belongs to the folder or bin on which the right click happened (it does belong to it) or to the document node that is selected after the click.

In some cases it is possible to collapse a folder, then close another folder or file and end up with a document selected that is in the collapsed folder, and therefore invisible.

    Fixed as of revision 4514:

    Folders and bins now can be selected. If a folder is closed, the selection in the navigator is moved to the document shown in the Definitions Pane, thus making sure that something is selected in the navigator, and that the selection is visible and not in a collapsed subtree.
