Lazarus IDE has many great features aimed to let developers navigate and edit code faster and easier.

Unfortunately, since those features were implemented by different authors over long period of time, they are distributed, with partial duplication, across various (and sometimes obscure) dialogs, menu items and windows.

Consolidating IDE user interface would simplify feature discovery and usage.

This page is WIP of a proposal for UI consolidation via merging some windows and dialogs. A timeline for this merge is not determined, and should not be rushed.

When/if it is decided to merge some windows/dialogs, it is important not to loose any features or convenience of originals.
