How can I do this in MATLAB?

4 views (last 30 days)
In pycharm, if I have a bunch of py files and let's say I have opened 1 file that calls a function defined in the other file. Clicking on the function will open the corresponding file in which the function is defined.
I'd like to have a similar interface for .m files.
Any suggestions?

Put the cursor on the function whose definition you want to open. Right-click and select "Open <name of function>". There's a keyboard shortcut for this, in the Windows default set of keyboard shortcuts it's Ctrl-D, but I'm not sure what it is on the Emacs or Macintosh default sets of keyboard shortcuts. The context menu should list the appropriate shortcut.
If you want to jump to a specific section or subfunction in a file, the Navigate section on the Editor tab in the Toolstrip has tools that will allow you to do this or set bookmarks (so you can easily jump between a local helper function and the place where it is called, to mention one way I've used bookmarks.)
