As you type into Goto Anything’s input area, names of files in the current project will be searched, and a preview of the best match will be shown. This preview is transient; that is, it won’t become the actual active view until you perform some operation on it. You will find transient views in other situations, for example, after clicking on a file in the sidebar.

Goto Anything lives up to its name –there’s more to it than locating files.
