My issue:
Having two or more windows of the same file open, ex. docked side by side.

Using VA Outline or VA Find References, as far as i know.
Double-clicking on a list item will move the focus to the next window of the same file.
If i was in window A it will move focus to window B.
Double-clicking again it will move to the next window of the same file after that.
It will rotate through all the windows of the same file.
A -> B -> C and back to A, etc..

It is very annoying and i do not believe this is an intended feature. Off-by-one bug ?

Because if it was a feature you should be able to turn it off.

Which IDE and version of VA are you using?

Can you post a screen shot of the window layout you are using please.

Using VS2008 and VA 1856 I have used:

IDE Window menu -> New Window

to open a cpp file twice in VS2008. I could not reproduce this problem with the two tabs next to each other.

So I then used:

IDE Window menu -> New Vertical Tab Group

to place one of the views into the current file into a separate tab group, so I could see both views of the file at the same time. Double clicking with the mouse into VA Outline to jump to various function in this file always places focus into the first window.

Oh my, i forgot mention that, sorry:
Visual Studio 2010

Here's a screenshot:


Test 1:
Focus on "tab_test.cpp:1"
In double-clicking on "_tmain" in VA Outline results in:
Changed focus to "tab_test.cpp:2", dclick again
Changed focus to "tab_test.cpp:3", etc..

Test 2:
Focus on "tab_test.cpp:2" and do the same will result in a slightly different focus rotation.
