Description

Currently the context menu's last entry is "Show details". This does not make sense as we also have the "Open in ..." context menu which, beside others, also has the entry " ... referencing objects view"

These are both dependend views for which the open command does not open another main editor but only an additional view is opened.

Different possibilities exist:

  1. Move the "Show Details" command also to the "Open in ... " menu.

  2. Have an extra menu item "Show ..." which opens all possible such views

  3. Completely remove the "Show Details" entry as it is anyway only a shortcut for the main menu "Windows->Show View->...".

Personally I prefer an extra menu entry as I think that "Open in ..." and "Show (view)..." are different issues. The first moves you to another place in the TaxEditor while the second is only a (very useful!) shortcut for the main menu entry but it keeps you where you are and only gives you additional information/editing possibilities. I often find it desturbing having the "Referencing objects" in the "Open in ..." menu and also find it desturbing that I have to search for the "referencing objects" within the "Open in ..." entries (something I do very often therefore in general I like to have such a shortcut and no need to go to the main menu).
