PHP Editor Tools for navigation between Files. Moving between the open files is now as easy as it can be with PhpED 5.2 enhancements for files navigation.

Code Folding - now enhanced for PHP operators. PHP Code folding that was introduced in version 5.0 is now extended to support "for", "foreach", "while", "if" operators and well as the sets of similar structures - for example the set of "define" instructions. In addition to the newly added support for PHP operators, starting with the version 5.0 PHP IDE displays the collapsible regions of the code with folding marks and automatically detects and marks PHP Tags, PHP Comments, PHP Classes, Methods in PHP Classes, PHP Functions, PHP operators and allows you to mark and collapse any part of the text in the PHP Editor.
