It would be good if there was a facility to set multiple breakpoints from within the Uses tool.

  1. Select a variable in the code editor, and invoke Find points Of Use
  2. Select multiple source lines in the Uses panel resulting from step #1
  3. Use proposed option to set breakpoints for all lines selected in step #2

This is a good idea and we'll try to do it. I think it could also allow things like setting a bookmark on the selected lines, etc. A use case I could immediately benefit from would be combining setting bps with being able to constrain the Find Uses results to only places that the symbol is set to a new value, if we can add that as well. Thanks for the suggestion.

That was the Use Case I was thinking of also. Your suggested addition would be really good.

An alternate plan of attack could be to add a "break when value changes" option to Watched items. Although that covers less Use Cases than the original suggestion.
