Feature request: show preview in Symbol window for searchs and build errors

(1/2) > >>

KenM:
I'd like the Search Results window to work like the References window- as I click on a found instance, show the file & line in the Symbols window.

Also, the Build window: if I click on a build error, show the file & line in the symbol window.

We've been turning the Symbol Window into a preview window a little at a time. I think this is a great suggestion. I have filed a change request for this, but I can't say when we'll implement it.  Perhaps in v12.

Is there a roadmap for v12?
What features are you planning for next version?

ScottW, VP of Dev:
That's a common question. Yes, there is a roadmap for v12. Unfortunately, I can't share it with you, sorry. Though we work hard to keep to an annual release cycle, the contents of a particular release changes over time. We'll start a feature only to find out it poses more difficulty than expected. Or we'll get a great idea late in the release cycle and bump an already planned feature to accomodate it.

Even on minor enhancements, I'm hesitant to say anything until they have actually been coded. We've had occaisions where we told people we'll try to include a change in a particular release and then not be able to do so, only to have them be angry because we promised we'd include it.

We're working on some ideas on how we can give customers a better sense of what's coming without revealing too much or letting people down when things change. If you have any ideas about this, I'd be delighted to hear them.

I doubt that I have any useful ideas about this, but I think that this forum is a great start in a positive direction.  My thinking is that this community-centric communications medium will evolve over time and in that evolution, users will be better informed on many topics beyond what's coming in future releases.  I also suspect that a lot of good ideas from the community will work their ways into the product so that we all benefit as a result of it.  I've been using SE since v3, so I know that I'm hooked!  I think that other users who are rather new to SE may find this forum is a great resource for finding a lot of cool tricks, traps and techniques for using The World's Best Code Editor!

Scott, maybe we can have a V12 SE icon "contest?"  Talk about community involvement!


Take Care.

Rob!
