Currently, the Javadoc view (apparently used to display formatted AsDoc in FDT) only
shows documentation when the caret is exactly "on" a documented item (class name, method name, etc.) within the editor view. This is nice basic functionality, but somewhat incomplete.
It can also be annoying: Whenever I move the editor caret "off" a documented item (for example, in order to edit the corresonding AsDoc comment), the formatted documentation disappears from the Javadoc view. I have to move the caret back onto the item just to see my formatted edits. Arrg!
Could you please consider the following improvements:
- Make the Javadoc view display the formatted AsDoc when the editor caret is either "on" the documented item or anywhere within the AsDoc comment for the item – and refresh the Javadoc view as AsDoc edits are made.
- Make the Javadoc view also display AsDoc for the currently selected item in the Outline view.
(The above two behaviors are very similar to how things work with Java in Eclipse.)
