Names of files open in the editor
« on: August 07, 2016, 09:06:53 am »
For the eight years that I have been using Code::Blocks, the second line of the right half of the screen has shown the names of the open files. Today, it mysteriously began to show only the name of the routine where the cursor is. Very clever, but I need the names of those open files. How can I get them back? Presumably, I inadvertently did something, but I have been unable to figure out what it was or to undo it.
Thanks for your help.

Probably switch to the projects tab instead of the symbol browser?
Also there is the open file list plugin - View -> Open file list.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Thanks. Clicking the "Projects" tab in the "Management pane" did not immediately make any difference. But with it clicked, and some further clicking around, suddenly I have the file names back. Unfortunately, I am not sure just what click brought them back. Now they show no matter which tab is selected in the Management pane. I generally work with the Resources tab open. Wish I could be clearer about what brought back the file names.
