Display settings before launching checkbox disappeared in Maia #10597

This option disappeared, so now the behavior I am used to, being able to review and change the run or debug configuration before launching, is not available.  Is this a bug or a feature?

Hello Weston,

to review and change the run or debug configuration before launching,
is not available. Is this a bug or a feature?


This is a feature. The new "Run..." and "Debug..." popups (Alt-Shift-F9 and
Alt-Shift-F10) let you press F4 to edit the run configuration.

Hello Dmitry,

The new "Run..." and "Debug..." popups are great. I have however noticed a potential usability problem involving them and the mouse pointer. I've documented it in http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-24033. I'm not sure if there is an easy answer to this issue. It might be an annoyance that simply has to be dealt with. But maybe a JetBrains Swing guru might know a solution.

Regards.
Mark

I get it.  If I choose edit from the alt-shift popup, I can run or debug after editing.  But if I choose a configuration from the configuration drop down, I have lost the ability to edit the configuration when clicking run or debug or pressing shift-F9 or shift-F10.  This is a bit of learning curve, and still has the feel that something has been taken away.  Couldn't we fix this by just adding a Run and a Debug button from the edit dialog reached from Edit Configurations menu command?
