I promise I won't ask again ...

... but is it possible to get a full list of all matches in the Goto ... dialogs?

I've tried increasing the item limit, and this didn't make a difference. It's a bit of pain because I'm working on project with hundreds of classes, that all seem to begin with 'A' ... :)

We're currently working on some feature that will allow to group entries with the common prefix. That seem to ease your
pain. To be avaliable in 5.0

Ok. Thanks.

I really wanted to just make sure that I was missing something blindly obvious, but since I'm not, I'll stop bothering you ... :)

Look forward to seeing it in Version 5.0 ...

I am curious though; is there a reason why you only show about 30 matches? Memory? Usability?

Rayz, I'm sure you're aware of these, but just in case I'll make sure
you are aware of a couple of things that might help you...

in the goto dialogs:

The more you type the smaller the list gets.

If you press Ctrl+Space, the common prefix for all the entries is
completed, so you can quickly add extra characters that will reduce the
size of the list.

If you know the letters of the 'camel humps' you can just type those in
to quickly reduce the list size e.g. NPE for NullPointerException. You
can even add intermediate letters to reduce the list further e.g. NoPeE
for NoPermissionException

Hope this helps,
N.

Usability first. I won't stop typing a pattern until there are not more than 5 items. Though I agree everyone has it's
own workflow.

You can also use * as a wildcard for similar effect.
