i like the quickactions menu, but its constantly getting in the way

Chris Kirby 6 years ago updated by Omer Raviv (CTO) 6 years ago 6

It would be nice if you could offset the quick actions menu from the cursor. I'm constantly triggering the menu when moving the cursor to the front of the line with my mouse, so it would be nice to have a little breathing room. I currently leave it off because of this, so i would love the ability to customize the position a bit. thanks

Thank you very much for your feedback, Chris, Matthew and Dave! We've taken your feedback very seriously. The new version of OzCode moved the QuickActions over to the margin so that it won't obstruct your view of the code. Also, the QuickActions only show-up at debug time, so they won't disturb you while you edit code. If you want, you can still summon the Quick Actions while writing code by hitting Alt+Shift+D.
Planned - Long term

Thanks a lot for the feedback, Chris. We plan to tackle this in the future by putting our QuickActions in a gutter (on the left side of the code) in the same way that IntelliTrace and Resharper 8.0 do. Thus, it will never get in your way or obscure code from view. 


In the meantime, you could try increasing your default font size just a little bit, which will make the problem a lot less common.

I, too, have noticed this behavior. When cutting/pasting, it often gets in my way while selecting with the mouse. Moving to the gutter is a good idea, but as a Resharper user, please make sure it doesn't cover up the icon provided by Resharper. I don't often click that icon, sticking with the keyboard shortcut, but having one cover up the other would be frustrating. Thanks!!


Hi Matthew, thanks a lot for your feedback! When we move the icon to the gutter, we'll make sure it peacefully co-exists with the Resharper gutter and that there's no conflict. 

I absolutely LOVE "Exception Trail", but other than that, I don't use QuickActions for anything.  Perhaps when the icon is in the gutter, it won't be so bad, but I find it annoying when I'm not debugging so I find myself turning QuickActions off most of the time and then turning it back on when I want to look at exceptions.  I suggest you separate those features when enabling/disabling OzCode features.
Thanks a lot for the feedback, Dave! The QuickActions will be moved to the gutter in the next update of OzCode, and we're currently considering removing the QuickActions wand entirely when you're not debugging (or at least making it an option). Thanks again for weighing in on this, your input will definitely impact our decision.
