 Description  « Hide
The 'FDT search references' result list is formatted differently in the new version. What made this tool such a great one, was that you could easily find the references to properties & methods and navigate to them super fast with a single click! With the new layout, this is no longer possible. Now I have to:
1) Expand the package
2) Expand the class
3) Doubleclick on the reference to go to the code

OR click on the 'Expand All' option which is found under the right mouse button context menu.
It now takes me AT LEAST 3 clicks to navigate to the reference instead of 1. In my opinion, usability-wise this is works less well than in FDT3.5.

I would recommend expanding the list by default, so the tool is a accessible&speedy one again, just like it was.

I added this screenshot, where you can see what i mean: http://www.rumblingskies.com/grabs/ce458768dfbc34b9c24f93902d55446a.png

Hi Erik van Nieuwburg,

if you do not like expanding by hand do the following: Assume you want to get all hits in lazy button (like in your screenshot)
click on the line and then us the yellow down arrow then automatically the frist hit is expanded.
