Quick open, finding files in a different (not sub-) folder

Asked by Kenneth Sundqvist on 2009-09-18

I'm guessing that quick open now searches in the folder in which the current document is located, and sub-folders of that one. This is a problem when working like this:

I have this document open:
~/myproject/views/view.tpl

And I want to quick open this document:
~/myproject/css/styles.css

How can I make quick open find that file?

Hello,

1) Press <ctrl><alt>o to show quick open window
2) Press <alt>Up to search parent folder this will seach ~/myproject
3) Type "sty" to search for "styles.css"

Good luck

Thanks Mystilleef, that solved my question.

Came here with the same question.
Now, if I'm working on a project that has a lot of subdirectories (eg. Ruby on Rails, Symfony...), is there a way for Quick Open to always use the same search path, independently of the current document? Otherwise, I have to Alt<Up> a lot... =S

Thanks.
