Inspection/Errors setings suggestions

Hello, All!

Those settings are totaly unfriendly :) Especialy with very-very-lot of
Monster Griffit inspections :), i can't find needed inspection if i need
inspection A to turn on/off. I seek it for long time :).

1. Will be fine to have tabs or collabsed tree by categories (i like tree
presentation, but i want to collapse all).
I can collapse it now, but view is not remember collapset items then i open
Errors twice.

2. Again and again, please add color picker for choose color of marker on
errors bar in editor. For example:


There
- is default color of Warning - yellow, then user choose level, then
marker color is set to level color, but user can change it from default
level color to his own.
- custom color.


Thanks!

That would keep us from squinting constantly, when looking for a
particular rule.

We definetely understand current UI is not scalable and thus somewhat
completely unusable de-facto.
What I'd like to ask for is a brainstorming this item. I like both
Alexey's and Alain's suggestions. More thoughts, comments, ideas,
anticipations?

This is going to sound a bit odd, but I think that the categorization for InspectionGadgets inspections needs to be rethought. Several of the categories have grown beyond acceptable size, and need to be split and reassigned. Unfortunately, I'm somewhat stumped for good categories. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Maxim,

What I'd like to ask for is a brainstorming this item.




1.a/
I've just added
"Intention: add savable profiles"
http://intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=39078

, that complements
"IDE Settings - errors : add savable profiles , as in "Code
Inspection", and.."
http://intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=15113


1.b/
- Both those features should be switchable through "Quick Switch Scheme"

2/
- Add code examples, and counter-examples to all (most) Errors
descriptions,
The example would show what triggers the error/warning
The counter example would show
- the modified version of the example, that wouldn't trigger the
error, or
- the corrected version ... when there is a quickfix.


3/ Show big samples + hyperlink the problem to the solution/detection:

Currently, you pick an intention, and you are show the problem it solves.
Being able to work the other way around would be more convenient, in
most case:

For intentions:
- Show bigger code samples - 1 or more classes- , that regroup, and
demonstrate in one or a few location many/all the problems that could be
fixed by intentions,
and
- place code bulbs close to the locations that would trigger one or
more intention. Mousing over those bulbs would display the name(s) of
the available intentions, and mousing over the name(s) would pop-up the
before/after code samples, as they appear in the IDE Settings.Intention
Settings:Usage example.
This is a kind of hyperlinking the problem (bad code) to the problem
solver (the intention)

For Errors:
For Inspect Code
Reuse the same principle as above (Show "bad" code examples, but
hyperlink the problem to the problem spotter (inspection/error)
