Are there any plans to beef up quick javadoc in IDEA 10?

Hi,

now that you have made so much progress in improving the L&F of IDEA, the quick Java Doc window stands out. Are there any plans to improve that dialog as well? I believe that even minor changes can make a huge difference. There's a number of issues in Youtrack.

Issue Title
IDEA-61312 Javadoc paragraphs in quickdoc are shown the same way as line breaks
IDEA-57926 Improve usability for resizing quick javadoc
IDEA-24560 Use anti-aliasing settings in quick javadoc
IDEA-53057 Quick documentation bugs and suggestions
IDEABKL-215 Would like to change font displayed in Quick JavaDoc (CTRL-Q)


My favorite nuisance is IDEA-61312. Fixing that would improve readability a lot for me. What do you guys think?

Me too. I like it so much that I reported it twice :)

Am I the only one having problems with quick doc window shrinking?


Mine eventually disappeared(which created a new issue) and I had to go and fix the settings.

Seems to shrink by 5 both for height and width on each ctrl-q.


From options.xml:

    <size key="javadoc.popup.0.0.1251.964" width="395" height="295" />

After doing a ctrl-q


    <size key="javadoc.popup.0.0.1251.964" width="390" height="290" />


After another two more ctrl-q

    <size key="javadoc.popup.0.0.1251.964" width="380" height="280" />

And another two:

    <size key="javadoc.popup.0.0.1251.964" width="370" height="270" />


However, it seems that the updates to options XML do not occur everytime(seems to be dependent on how focus on the pop-up is lost or else just a delay of some sort), yet, the amount of decrease is being tracked within the application; so I am guessing it is not an issue with the save to options.xml.


Also, it seems impossible to resize the window, which is, well, only adding to the issue.
