Re: [ide-dev] 10 ideas to improve Eclipse IDE usability

This has turned into a great UX review. We need to do more of this, maybe in a more organized session.

My first reaction was that I had no idea what those icons meant. I agree, these should be in the list of quick fixes. Makes them discoverable and easy to understand. And it was surprising F2 to Focus actually means F2 to Focus and get more features.

You need to 'press F2 to focus'.

FWIW, I'm pretty sure that was the first time I've ever pressed F2 to focus :-). 
Maybe those buttons (configure annotation preferences and configure problem severity) should be in the list of quick fixes.

Interesting. Where is that coming from? Because I don't have it and have
never seen it before.

The attached screenshot is what I get in Luna RC1 - and it has looked like
that for as long as I can remember.
