Find your way Home

I often find myself working in one extension.xml file, while I have another extension.xml file, from a different application, open as a reference.  When working with multiple applications open, you can get in a state where the file you're looking at in the editor, is not really located in the application that is shown in the Navigator. 

It can be confusing and a bit of a pain to have to select the application from the pulldown in the navigator and switch back and forth.

Well, you don't have to.  When you are in the editor for a specific file, just type Alt-Home and the Navigator will sync to whatever application and project that file is located in.  Quick and Easy!

 Hope this helps others as much as it has helped me.

I put
<!-- my-module -->
at the top of extension.xml - right after the copyright notice
The structure pane displays the comment - that tells me where I am.
