Hi:

It would be very useful to have the option to make the output of Ctrl+/ look more like the results of the search windows (when doing find in files) where I can see much more information at once.

What I mean is that each time a cross reference is found, list it as a line (such as in the search window), but also show the function (or data structure) name as well and then the content of that line of source code.

This way with one glance you can see all the single lines of source code where this symbol is referenced.

Some further thoughts on this feature request.

Perhaps with this feature, the results of cross reference could be sent to the actual search tabs in order to have some code reuse and user interface reuse (similar output format as actual searches). An advantage of this is that there can be multiple search tabs, but there is only 1 cross-reference tab (another feature request is to have multiple cross-reference tabs, also multiple process buffers - but these are other subjects).
