Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

RSARTE: Make it possible to edit propertysets in the property view

Used v10 2016.v35.
When changing eg a typedef, several editors need to be opened to change all fields.
Make it possible to change them from within the properties dialog. See acttachment

    These fields were previously editable, but we then got complaints from users that normal CDT features such as code completion etc. are not available when editing there (because these are plain text fields - not full CDT editors). We therefore made them read-only and instead provided a way to open the code editor where full code editing support is available.
    I think what is truly asked for here is an improved code editor that can show and edit more than one code snippet at a time. Somethink like the CDT editor for a generated file, where all generated code is hidden, and only the handwritten code snippets are shown.
