Customize the debug buttons

In the panel "5: Debug" there is a vertical row of buttons on the left (rerun, resume program, pause program, etc...).

Is it possible to customize these buttons, add different ones, and remove some?

In particular, I'd like to remove the "Mute Breakpoints" button, and instead place a button there that'd disable/enable all break points (as if I'd open the breakpoints window and manually click on each of the checkboxes). Is this possible?

Hello Aardwolf,

There is no possibility to add a button that does something not implemented
in the IDEA code, other than by writing a plugin.

I don't see what you're trying to achieve, though - why isn't Mute good enough
for you?

The mute button is too temporary, it "unmutes" a few seconds after you start debugging an application. In my usage scenario this is annoying.

I often switch between debugging with all breakpoints or without them many times in a row. However the fact that to disable all breakpoints, you need to start debugging first, then wait a few seconds while it loads, and only then press the "mute" button with the mouse, is really annoying.

Having a quick button to toggle all breakpoints between enabled and disabled is just really, really handy. Visual Studio has one

so you want the mute-button to remember its last state per run configuration?
