Follow-up Comment #3:

Yes Torsten that does it. Thanks!

The text you mention is:

"Always show debug breakpoints and pointers (open related file if closed)"

I figured files not in the editor would always be opened when "step in" is
clicked - what else would one expect "step in" to do in a GUI editor?
So I interpreted "...open related file if closed" more as a sort of warning
than as a selectable action, all the more because this text is between

My reasoning was that "step in" w/o seeing a file is just blind guessing.
Obviously "step in" is only useful if the file is open in another editor or on
hard copy, i.e., when using a CLI. Having a debugged file open in the GUI
editor and not opening stepped-in files in that same GUI editor seems
But admittedly I can imagine that there can be user scenarios for it.

OK, closing as "invalid"
