Selecting an object in in object explorer and hitting shift-F4 fails


#1

Instead of opening the selected object in the Object Details tab (as it does in
the editor) it complains that there is no object at the selected point.

SHIFT+F4 is a command to show the object at the Cursor in the Editor. It is not intended to work from the Object Explorer. That’s not to say maybe it shouldn’t, but it was not designed to do this.

The easiest way to see object information in a non-document window from the Object Explorer is to right-click the object and select Send To - Object Details.

To view object information in a document window, right-click and select View Details. If you want this action to be the default double-click behavior (I do this), then go to Options | Explorer | General - Double-Click Behavior - Open Details.

David, actually, the easiest way to see object information is to middle-click
the object.
(It was very nice to see my feature request implemented so fast!)

Cheers
