Compiler Options <-- not just compiler options, all project options for the currently active project. Files / Forms are not just for the current project but all open projects. "Projects (recently open)" and "Recent Projects" is redundant. Code templates are only available if the editor is active when invoking IDEInsight. "Components" should read "Component Palette", which lists all installed components, and the item "Components" lists all components on the currently designed form. IDEInsight does not list refactorings, AFAIK.
<text-box>: add the fact that multiple search terms and simple wildcards can be used; e.g., 'abc' will match items with 'abc' anywhere. 'abc def' will match any item with both 'abc' and 'def'. Simple wildcards: '*' and '?' have the standard Windows filesystem wildcard meanings. Regular expressions are not used.
<categories>: how to disable a category? (click on the drop down arrow next to the search icon in the text box and de-select categories you don't want to see)
I suggest that the list be laid out with all categories listed by name, when they appear, and what happens when you select an item in that category:
> Code templates - available when editor is active. Inserts the selected code template at the cursor position in the editor. > Commands - currently available commands based on the IDE's current context. Performs the selected command. > Component Palette - available when the form designer is active. Drops the selected component on the currently selected component of the form designer. > Options - Opens the active project's Project Options dialog to the selected page. > Desktop SpeedSettings - loads the selected desktop speedsettings. > Files - lists source files in all open projects. Opens the selected file in the editor (see View | Units) > Forms - lists forms and data modules in all open projects. Opens the selected form/data module in the form designer (see View | Forms). > New Items - lists the available Gallery (or Repository?) items based on the current IDE context (see File | New | Other) > Open Files - lists all files currently open in the editor, and activates the selected editor tab. > Preferences - ( Tools > Options pages) > Recent Files - list of recent files open in the editor. Selecting an item re-opens the file. > Recent Projects - list of recent projects and project groups. Selecting an item closes the current project group and opens the selected project or group.
