Specific JIRA issues stand a much better chance of getting attention from JetBrains.

I'm not sure if IDEA 8.0 officially supports Hibernate Annotations.

However, our project now uses the specific @org.hibernate.annotations.Table annotation (instead of the generic JPA one), and this causes the ORM model to be incomplete:
IDEA-20134: "Resolve "appliesTo" attribute of "org.hibernate.annotations.Table" annotation"

Definetely these:
- Editor tabs: EditorTabPlacement settings are not applied. This prevents me to put the tabs on the right side of the screen.
- Drag & drop tabs
- Specify Editor Tab Width

Having the tabs there has multiple advantages:
- you can see more tabs at a time because more tabs fit on the screen
- the occupied space is taken from the right side where I have a lot because I use a widescreen LCD

I insist on this tabs-on-the-right issue because it's a big productivity boost.

Tabswitch support. At the moment, Tabswitch is broken for me, and it's (besides ctrlspace) one of my most used shortcuts. At the moment, the dialog doesn't disappear, I can't select files, and I can't walk through the list by pressing alta multiple times. For me, it's a must fix!

Another one: Highlight usages in file!

At the moment, it's almost perfect, but please make it the same a the manual 'Search -> Highlight usages in file'. At the moment, when selecting a catch statement, it doesn't display the place where it's thrown. The 'Search -> HUIF' version does highlight it, and IMO, it would be a very nice addition to have it!

It's been only what, 2½ years, and I still can't edit unregistered files without hassle. I can't reason for the life of me why this still hasn't been implemented.
