    I just had time to play with the new IDE a few minutes. It is really great.
    The best feature of this version is that you can place all these helper windows around where you want them to be and that the IDE remembers the layout after a restart. Finally!

    I want this for B4A as soon as possible. :)

    If I press F7 for the "Find all References" window shouldn't this window get the focus so that I can select the finding I want with the keyboard? Now I have to use the mouse to select the finding I want to navigate to.

    This is by design. The IDE provides three types of cues for the references: the list, the blue highlights and the marks near the scrollbar. From my experience in many cases you are looking for references near the current location and moving the focus to the list can be a bit annoying. It might be changed in the future.

    In that case, can we have a shortcut like Ctrl+F7, Ctrl+Shift+F7 that would jump towards and backwards from/to the next reference?

    Nice idea. Will probably not make it into v3.00. Maybe later.
