Description mclaborn 2011-08-22 16:18:06 UTC
I have two classes named "ObjectWrapper" in different projects.  One class is deprecated and the other one is not.  When I use the "Fix Imports" function, both classes are listed as a choice and the deprecated class is the one chosen by default.

I think one of the following options would be better:

1) Have a checkbox on the "Fix Imports" dialog that controls whether or not to show deprecated classes.
2) Show deprecated classes in this "Fix Imports" dialog with the strikethrough font so that it is readily apparent that they are deprecated.

This is still a problem in 8.1.
