Please vote for 20799 and make "Go to class" smoother

I've just voted for:

http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=20799


99% of the time when using Ctrl+N "go to Class.." I want the "include
non-project classes" box checked and it is very annoying to have to
check it each time.

The suggestion of simply having this dialog remember check box state
between invocations seems a good compromise.

Anyone else agree?

Hi,

I do not agree that this would be a good compromise. In my personal
opinion ;)
a good compromise would be to make a separate configuration setting for
that.

I'm using the "include non-project classes" option maybe once a week
(usually to
look up some int constants). If the checkbox would simply remember its last
state, it would just clutter the drop-down-list unnecessarily.

Gerd

I agree with you, i'd prefer an option for the default too. However
there seemed to be some push back, about the idea of adding yet another
configuration option, hence the compromise that was suggested.

I also use ctrl-n, alt-a quite often, and it is some
stress of the fingers ;)

Would it be possible to make a double key shortcut:
ctrl-n,a -> this causes the non-project-checkbox to
be checked?

Yes, I can understand both points-of-view. Maybe a different function /
shortcut for the desired behaviour could remedy that....but C-S-n and
C-S-A-n are already taken ;)

Here's another idea:

If there're too few classes to show you on your input - it automatically
checks the non-project classes. Should work OK 99% of the time.

Cool. That way it even saves us "low Alt-n users" some time (millis at
least)...
