Aqua Help

File structure

Aqua allows you to view and navigate the structure of a file in the Structure tool window and the Structure popup.

Highlighting changes in files

You can see the VCS status colors in the Structure tool window and the Structure popup if your project is under version control. It helps you track changes in files. The names of modified objects become blue, and the names of the newly added objects appear highlighted in green.

Hover over icons in Structure to get additional information in tooltips about the items.

Structure popup

The popup provides less information than the tool window, but it allows you to navigate the structure faster due to the Narrow down on typing option.

  1. Open a file in the editor and press Ctrl+F12, or go to Navigate | File Structure in the main menu.

  2. In the popup, start typing the name of the element that you want to find. The IDE will narrow down the search results as you type.

    You can also use CamelHumps, that is, for example, you can type dsu to match DoSomethingUseful.

  3. You can additionally narrow down your search results by using the checkboxes in the popup. To change the sorting, click and select the necessary option.

  4. Press Enter or click an item to close the popup and navigate to the selected element in the editor.
