What happened to 'Add To Watches' in the context menu?

I used to be able to add sub objects to my watches by right clicking on the field in the object tree (in the debug window or in the alt-f8 window) and selecting 'add to watches'. What happened to this feature? Is there some other way to acheive the same thing? I had no idea how much I appreciated this feature until it went away!

Nothing happened. The functionality is still there.
Could you give some details about what's wrong?

Sorry for disappearing for so long. I suddenly couldn't recall what my issue had been (I guess I was intimidated on hearing there was no behavioural change).

But now I recall...

I believe that in previous versions of IDEA, I could browse through an object (either in the debugger window or after clicking alt-f8) and, on finding an interesting subfield I could right click on the field and select 'add to watches'. However, I no longer see that option when browsing through object trees.
