Description mhutch 2011-10-03 11:42:13 UTC
We should have a quick launch bar like VS11 has:

I think we can do better.

I've proposed before that we have a lucene-powered IDE-wide search over all documents, pads, options panels, commands, help text, BCL classes, files in the current solution, etc

I've also proposed that we have some kind of Quicksilver-like text command system that would actually be aware of MD context, which would be much more powerful than a simple search: http://monodevelop.com/Developers/Tasks/General/Text_command_interface#_task_a_General.TextCommandInterface

Doesn't our search bar fix this issue?

Not really, we have one but it doesn't do most of what I suggested.
