I'm working on a project that consists of many, many small files. I have to switch between Editor/Files window every time I finish a file. It's frustrating and time consuming. Is there any keyboard shortcut to "open next file" without leaving Editor window?

Thanks in advance.

Ben, in Studio 2014 you have the possibility of opening multiple files at the same time (pseudo-merge feature).
Just hold Ctrl pressed while you click on each file of your list, you will see they all get selected, and when you finish your selection, hit Enter. You will see all your files open at the same time.

Open all files in one go from the Files window Jul 9, 2015

Very easy solution:

Select all the files in the Files window (click to the first file, scroll down to the last, Shift+Click the last file)
Right click > Open for Translation.

And you should be set.

Opening all files at once did the trick.
Thanks for your tips!
