It would be handy to be able to select "Run with Debugger" from the context menu of an agent in design mode.

If you click on the icon "Debug LotusScript" and in the shortcut menu on agent choose "Start", it will not be enough?

yes that is what we have currently. From an ergonomic perspective, it is my view that providing the options at the control point removes the need to *understand* the idiosynchracy of the interface. When adjusting an office chair, it is expected that all the relevant levers are located spatially together, this is the spirit in which I make the suggestion.

I wonder if it was universal, that is, for all design elements, but most need a context (data).
It has limited use - only for agents that run on the server, otherwise is needed DocumentContext.

You're right, it's only agents that get special treatment, because they are stateless scripts. Anyway, it's only a minor improvement I'm suggesting...

I remember when clicking on Debug LotusScript would pop up a "Debugger started" dialog box (or words to that effect, version 7?), required an extra OK click, I'm sure glad they got rid of that and put it back in the status bar!

And sometimes you forget you have debugger on. Just the other day I did, opened an external meeting update and clicked the Update Calendar button, and after clicking Continue 10 times or so it crashed Notes :-(

This little thing would be nice, it's not always or even very often that you want to debug more than one thing, getting it down to 1 click instead of 3 (down from the 5 it was for a while there!) would be very nice :-)

Mike, you gave me an idea ;)
