    TWS should have an option to go directly to meta.xml file right from the cls/page files in the context menu itself. This is that one feature that was available in VS where it used to take us directly to the designer file which was really helpful when you needed to change something in that file. This feature will save a developers's time when he/she needs to change the version settings of a file.

      Hi Swagat,

      Thank you for your request.

      Right now this functionality is not available in the IDE, however you can easily open related -meta.xml file right from the Solution Explorer as this files are shown as child nodes for corresponding classes - exactly how this is done in the Visual Studio for designers.

      You can find the screenshot attached.

      Hope this helps.

      Thank you,

        Got it. But having a hotkey or a context menu would make it much easier and faster.
