Why is the breakpoint management dialog so different?

Why is the breakpoint dialog not a tool window like all the other ones? I miss the ability to dock the breakpoint view to use it the same way as all the other tool windows. Also when selecting a brakpoint, that dialog has its own code preview. Why not show the code where the breakpoint is, in the normal code editor?


Well, that's a good idea. Could you please file a feature request in our youtrack?


I agree with Konstantin that that is a good idea. Please post the YouTrack request when you create it; I'll vote for it.

As an FYI, you can view breakpoints in the Favorites tool window. (This was added fairly recently.)  Selecting one takes you to it in the editor. While you can delete breakpoints from it, you cannot edit them or add any.
