Description ecerichter 2013-04-06 20:00:19 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201304042355)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_17
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 23.7-b01

We have two actions with similar names, and I believe this can be improved.
If user right click a project (or a package), it has the option "Inspect and transform..." that lead to one dialog with few options (see attachment 1 [details]).
If user select the project (or a package), and click menu "Source" -> "Inspect", he is presented with another dialog with different options (see attachment 2 [details]).

This would be confusing for beginners. Would be better to have slight different names for each (and avoid the "inspect..." in one of them.
Actually, I do believe the "Inspect and transform" would be just "transform", since it not offers the compiler analysis neither the findbugs analysis.
Or the other way around, change the "Source -> Inspect" to "Source -> Quality" or "Source -> Problems detector" or "Source -> Action item analysis" - or none of these, something better that I cannot think about because english is not my mother language :-).
