jumping to the first error after a build
« on: July 09, 2012, 02:30:55 pm »
one feature I'm really missing (or maybe just can't figure out how to do) is the ability to separate the errors in the current build from the previous ones.
the scenario:
I'm using a GNU-C++ project (windows and MinGW but I assume it is the same on linux)
when I do a build, (ctrl+B) and I get a lot of errors (error in h file or template error will cause a lot of errors)
I want to jump to the first one and look into it (usually it's the only one relevant).
What I can do now is scroll up slowly until I recognize the build command. Is it really the only way?

After your build is stopped, use the Build > Next Error menu command. This will bring you to the first error for the most recent build session. The offending file will be loaded (or moved to the specific error location if already open) and display the red error/warning circle in the gutter. The Build window will also reposition the text insertion point as well as displaying the triangle-shaped error tick in the gutter
