Just stumbled upon this post.
@nathanr: I've read dozens of threads or people having the same opinion - the interface and the usablity is definitely not that good.
Just had an issue today where i was wondering why "search in files" isn't working correctly until i found out by accident that there is a small clickable directional icon...30 minutes of time were gone!. This is just a daily excerpt when working with komodo, i'll have to hover EVERY time through all the icons to know whats behind them.
Don't tell me that this is a good usability, never had this kind of problems in old versions of Komodo. You really should listen to us. We have to work daily with this program.
If, for example, 8 out of 10 people have an issue, it's their opinion too and not shared by everyone. Do you need ALL people sharing the same problems to have a reason to change anything?
Why don't you start a usability survey to determine our needs and opinions?
This would be the right way to go.
