It would be so nice if it was possible to refactor when using the GUI Designer.
Is it in the pipeline for 5.0?

What particular refactorings you expect there?

I'd love to be able to add intentions, like:

- Wrap JTable/JList/JTextArea with JScrollPane ( I'm forever
forgetting to add them first )
- Extract Sub-panel to .form ( also extracting to its own bean, that
is then maybe delegated in the bound bean ).

I'm slightly worried with zero votes on those items. Does that mean
nobody is actually care whether that will be implemented?

I think it's linked to the very low market share of the Gui Designer.
You should rather worry about that. 8(

I feel implementing a few of those ones would make the G.D. a little
more likable => a little more popular.

Alain,
please note this is not low votes but ZERO votes. Does that mean even
submitter does not care?

No pun here of course. I just want to explain votes are very important
for us when choosing what features to implement in a certain IDEA version.

Sometimes, voting doesn't work: look at
- AspectJ
- John Kerry

, so it's not surprising that sometimes, people - and I - lose faith in
it and stop using voting consistently.
I know, it's bad. I've just voted for the previously mentioned issues.

Note: there is a bug in ITN that prevents us from updating old votes
see: http://intellij.net/tracker/itn/viewSCR?publicId=789

You got the popular, but not the JetBrains Electoral votes -- ;)

- John Kerry


That's a cheap shot, but he lost both the popular and electoral -- so, now
that's just sour grapes ;)

Yes, you can't complain if you don't vote -- period.
