Description crazyjavahacking 2012-08-28 07:52:27 UTC
It would be great if the quick search in OutlineView would support CamelCase search. Currently the search ignores case.

I suggest to support behavior similar to CamelCase code completion: when the string "AB" is filled in, Nodes with names A...B should be highlited.

I would also suggest to turn this off by default to not confuse users and add an appropriate Options Window setting, see the attachment.
