This is a small, niggling kind of problem, but I thought I'd put it up in case anyone smarter than me has a simple solution.

In TeXnicCenter (I'm running the latest version, currently 2.02 stable), when you are browsing the list of warnings and errors in a compiled document, sometimes an error will call up a different file that has been included somehow. This is very useful when there's an error coming from your bbl file, much less so when there's a persistent warning in a cls file that I have to use from my employer, which I can't edit. Then it's annoying to have to close the new file every time.

So I'm wondering if there's a good way to prevent TeXnicCenter from pulling up additional files than the one open. I imagine I might need some sort of workaround that cripples its ability to open files. I played around with the commands it uses to call up Windows Explorer (in Tools -> Customize -> Tools) but couldn't figure anything out.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

What kind of error is it that you're getting from the employer .cls? Perhaps something can be done to remove this error altogether without editing it. – Werner Nov 10 '13 at 5:58

As far as I know there is no possibility in TeXnicCenter for this matter. You write yourself it is normally useful to get the file presented, which caused the problem. Where should TeXnicCenter know, that you do not want to see one of the files? By the way: You should after a while know the one special warning caused by you employer’s proprietary class, and could easily avoid clicking on it …

Depending on the warning or error there may be a chance, though, by suppressing the message with the package silence, and so it wouldn’t be showed by TeXnicCenter, too.
