too many ".content.xml" files


Level 4

One nuisance problem I've found while working with AEM in a general-purpose IDE like Eclipse, is that the average project contains hundreds of files all named ".content.xml".

So the editor tab bar quickly ends up looking something like this:


It becomes very hard to quickly switch between different components. Shortcuts like Ctrl-R become useless since every file of interest is named the same.

Are there any Eclipse settings that can alleviate this problem?

I  have never read anything that suggests that there is a setting that turns off this.

When working with IntelliJ, if you have 2 files that have the same name, it also shows the path to the specific file in the tab. That way you can tell which .content.xml file you're editing?
