Description _ gtzabari 2006-11-01 18:22:56 UTC
I'm surprised no one else seemed to suggest this before but I would love to see
Netbeans' watch window emulate Visual Studio's watch window more. Specifically,
you should be able to:

- Select, drag and drop text from the editor window into the watch window
- Add a new watch simply by clicking in an empty "slot" (one should always be
visible at the bottom) and typing the new expression

I find the existing interface very kludgey. I hate having to bring up a dialog
just to add a new watch. I should be able to just type it in directly or

We have this suggestion for a long time already - see issue #44575. I agree that
this would much improve the usability.
