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).

kind regards
