No, that's exactly what I was looking for!
Could it be, that this behavior depends on some configuration settings?
I tried both and there's no difference between Alt-enter and hitting the light-
bulb - *both* switch the source-file of the active editor window(part).
Ok, may be I have to clarify what I mean with window:
I have one instance of QtCreator open, which means one window from sight of
desktop window manager (kde). In QtCreator I used "split" and "split side by
side" several times, so I got 4 window-parts each showing a different source
file. Well, I like having the declaration aside the source file and both two
No matter, whether I start refactoring from header or from source and no
matter either, whether I hit Alt-Enter or click on the light bulb, the source
from the active editor changes (although the other source is already opened in
another editor part).
