"Show Usages" in Maia: where's the context?

Hi,

In IDEA 8, "Show Usages" provided the following context:
- class, or interface, or file name
- method signature, or e.g. containing Spring bean name
- line:column
- code fragment

In Maia, the method signature part (or bean name) is missing, which was an important part of usage context. Code fragments make no sense without any information about the containing method (there maybe tens of them in a single class). A list of spring bean references without the name of the containing beans doesn't make any sense either. As a result, most of the time I have to switch to the "Find Usages" view, which provides enough context.

I wonder why "Show Usages", which used to one of the most valuable features in IDEA 8, has been rendered almost completely useless in Maia for some non-obvious reasons? Am I missing something important? Is there any well-hidden configuration option to revert to the previous behaviour? Does anybody else feel similarly let down by this regression?

Regards,

Indeed, it's a bad regression. :(

Frankly, that was not obvoius to me either. For voting, there is an icon with a number inside, it's situated above the issue description, between star-shaped "favourites" icon and binocular-shaped "watch" icon. If you click on it, your vote is added and the number is incremented.

P.S. Please disregard function(){...} in the quoted fragment above. It's somehow added by forum comment editor.
