I know it is quite early in the year to write my wish list for Christmas. But I know that you carefully need to manage your resources delivering all those great new features... Seriously, here's something that is constantly annoying me in IDEA:
I am opening multiple windows to be able to work on multiple projects simuntaneously. The use case are projects for multiple branches of my code.
However, it is very difficult to distinguish those two IDEA windows from each other. Say project names are Superkalifrageles-trunk and Superkalifrageles-release_2.1 (for branches trunk and release_2.1)
- I need to parse the title bar of the windows to find the appropriate information that I need. This is tedious
- The windows task bar has multiple instances that look the same (same Icon, same text)
I am constantly ending up in the wrong instance of IDEA and frequently I start making changes for the wrong project. It would really great, if there were a way to make IDEA windows more distinguishable from each other. This could be different colors of the IDEA icon, different colors of the toolbar or something else entirely.
Thanks for listening.
