Description matthies 2016-02-23 21:13:29 UTC
Source->Inspect... does not work with multiple items being selected in the Projects view. It is only applied to the first selected item. There's also no "custom scope" option in the Inspect dialog, like with Find Usages.

This is inconvenient when you have a project group with e.g. 30 projects and you want to performa an inspection on a subgroup of e.g. 6 projects. Then you only have the choice between applying the inspection to all 30 projects, which might take a while and also requires filtering the results, or performing six individual inspections one after the other on the 6 respective projects, which is tedious.
