Maximum number of editors is not respected by the search function
When I set Tools - Options - Panels - Workspace - Maximum number of editors to 1 I expect to have only 1 window open at the same time. The reason I want this is to overcome the nasty habit of TestComplete to open the same file several times when searching. What I noticed here is that searching does not care about this setting. This is not how it should be, is it?
I failed to reproduce the behavior you had described.
What version of TestComplete are you using?
I tried the latest version of TestComplete (8.60), and everything worked fine (as you expected). Try upgrading to the latest version and reproduce the behavior. Does the problem persist?
I have one more guess: did you save the changes after you've set the target option's value? Try clicking the Save All button on the Standard toolbar after the option value is set to 1 and then try again. Does the problem occur?
If the problem occurs, please specify more detailed steps so that we could reproduce this behavior.
With the new version the number seems to be respected in most situations. However it is not respected when having one file open which was modified and not saved and the same file is opened again. Then there are 2 editors open. Might be a suggestion for the next version.
As far as I can see in our DB, the behavior you had described in your initial message will be changed in the next major release, so, in TestComplete 8.70, it shouldn't be changed.
As for the second situation (that you had described in the latest post), I failed to reproduce it using TestComplete 8.70. Would you mind to provide us with more detailed steps, or send your project to our Support Team?
