Suggestions / Feature Requests

Postby jhilgeman » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:07 pm

I have a few suggestions / feature requests to help improve upon the latest version (7.4):

#1. Allow me to dump Byte[] objects to a user-prompted file. This is particularly valuable when you know the KIND of object it is but you want to be able to open it in another appropriate program (e.g. you know it's a bitmap, but you want to view the entire bitmap in an image viewer).

#2. Allow me to resize the layout. For example, if I add 6 namespaces to any of the columns in the "Filter by Reference" section, the "Add namespace..." link is pushed off the page, and there is no way to add any more items. If I could resize the layout, I could expand the lower section to give me more space to add more required namespaces. Scrollbars in that bottom section would be helpful, too, but being able to resize each section would be very helpful. On a similar topic, being able to full-screen the graphs / charts would be helpful.

#3. On the instance retention graph, allow me to right-click on a given object instance, and show its properties in a pop-up / floating window. This would help in case I need to use it as a reference while working through the flow.

Thanks very much for your feedback!

>> #1. Allow me to dump Byte[] objects to a user-prompted file.

I'm not quite sure this is possible, but I've gone ahead and created a feature request for it and will let you know if the developers offer any feedback. It's logged with reference MP-1887.

>> #2. Allow me to resize the layout.

So sorry about this overflowing issue! I've logged it as a bug, MP-1884. I've also added the feature request, MP-1885, to be able to view the graphs in full screen. Just a note: saving the gaphs as pdf files may help to do this now.

>> #3. On the instance retention graph, allow me to right-click on a given object instance, and show its properties in a pop-up / floating window.

I've created another feature request for this with reference MP-1886.

Thanks again for your suggestions!
