Description Laurie Harper 2001-12-18 06:05:13 UTC
I never know what to expect from double-clicking a node in the Explorer tree;
the default action isn't the first on the context menu, nor does the context
menu highlight the default.  For example, the default action for an XML file
(assuming the XML module is installed) is 'Open' which is the second item on the
context menu.  The default action for an Ant script is Execute, which is some
way down the context menu.  There's no way to find this out except by double
clicking and hoping you don't get an undesired behaviour.

I'd like to see the default action identified somehow on the contet menu --
perhaps by bolding that entry?

In my opinion it will be nice to have this enhancement integrated in
the IDE, but I don't know who is responsible.

Perhaps David, feel free to reassigne.
