Contents

Specification of menu structure for NetBeans 7.4 / 8.0

This is the planned structure of top menus in the next post-7.3 NetBeans version, as agreed within the NB UI Steering Committee. Agreed/pending status is marked with each menu below. The owners of those menus with Agreed state are pleased to implement the changes. Changes are emphasized with respect to NB7.3 state using bold font or comments in italic.

Remark: The extent of the proposed changes is limited so as to introduce improvements without making navigation difficult for current users.

Note that an updated UI Review process (NetBeans 7.3+) is to be followed before substantial changes to NB UI are implemented. See UIReviews for details. For discussion preceeding this spec see UEXMenus. For overview of all currently considered UI problem areas see UIReviewsAreas.

Redesign proposal: approved 14 MAR 2013 at UISC meeting. (Issue 227635)

Please ensure that existing keyboard shortcuts are displayed aside the relevant menu items at all times, this is currently not always the case. Issue 226720

The proposed redesign includes joining Go to Type and Go to Symbol dialogs into one, that would be invoked by default in the Search for Type mode (from menu or by shortcut Ctrl-O) or in Search for Symbol mode (by shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Shift-O):

Unified Go to Type / Symbol dialog

The redesign of Go to Type and Go to Symbol dialog is considered nice to have but not necessary, should there be considerable technical problems with it.
