Hello, I'm new to Ada, GNAT/GPS and everything here.
Maybe My issue report here is already covered, OTOH Isaw something nobody has recognized because everyone
is so involved already I hope I am on the right discussion list (devel) for that - if not, please just tell
me and direct me to the right place.
I think there are a few usabilit issues in GPS (GPL Edition, using v6.0.1 (20140113) on Linux/x64):
* No hover text above tool buttons
At the toolbar icons, espacially the "build" etc. ones, there are no hovertips, so for a newcomer it is hard
to distinguish between the build icons. It would be helpful to add those here.
* Can't delete/rename file in project manager?
On the left side in the project tree, it is not possible to delete a file within GPS, or rename it? I found no
context menu item, "Del" key does not work. Is there a cause for that? Is that by design?
* "Open file" dialog shows hidden files
When you try to open a file (File > Open...), the dialog has the flag switched ON to show hidden files under
Linux (.*). This is disturbing as there are MANY .foo directories in $HOME under Linux - To find the
relevant ones is harder when these files are shown.
* Shortcut editor has no search function
When editing key shortcuts, (Edit > Key Shortcuts...), If I want to find anything in the long list of
shortcuts, I have to scroll through it and read every item. There should be a simple search input line (at
the top, next to the checkboxes) where I can enter e.g. "next" and it filters every shortcut that contains
"next" in the description. I'ts nearly impossible to find anything the current way.
