When I installed version 1.1, I couldn't get the structure window to show up like I had it in 1.0. I tried to show it by enabling it in the setting in the Window menu, but it would not appear. I also tried the Alt + 7 hot key which didn't work either. I finnally got it to show up by with the Restore Default Layout option, but it does not update with information for the selected tab or file. Now the Tool Windows menu option is grayed out for me, so I can't experiment with turning it on and off.
The documentation states:
The Structure tool window displays the structure of a file currently opened in the editor, or selected in the Project tool window. For diagrams, this tool window shows the diagram preview.
1. Why is the Tool Windows menu option grayed out?
2. How can I get the structure window to show the relevant information for the current tab?
3. Is there a way to have the methods collapsed by default in the Stucture window? Even when I collapse them, they expand themselves if you show and hide the window.
On a side note, PyCharm does many things better than Wing IDE, but the Structure window is not one of them. I hope to see some of these features down the road, mainly the collapsed methods.
Wing's Source Browser:
- has small unobtrusive icons
- know's the difference between functions and methods
- has collapsed methods by default so is easier to read
- shows the base class name
- lets you drill down to the attributes
- lets you browse the current module or the project classes
- is displayed by default
