    Command Palette? Argh!

    The feature of VSCode I hate the most is the command palette.

    Commands are less discoverable and figuring out which commands are related can be a nightmare like trying to find the right words to use in an Internet search.

    I love IDEA's menus, toolbars and most specifically key binding features for their discoverability and the opportunity to lift out what you do most often for convenient use.

      Got to agree here.. I use VSCode as a general text editor, Python IDE, Docker IDE and K8S IDE... and I rarely ever use the command palette, it's like look for a needle in a haystack... I'd rather have a yucky tabbed ribbon bar, than I can at least put short cuts in...

      And whilst hot keys are great... They also suck when you have large volumes of them!

        @Someone Else, grizzled is an appropriate term, sadly.

    Cool. They're finally coming out with some features that you can't get for free with Netbeans 12.x. :)
