Get to Inspector from Backtrace window

From Shannon 8/19/10: There doesn't seem to be any way to get an inspector window of something you double-click on in the backtrace window. This makes the backtrace window virtually worthless. (At least in 1.4).

I think the best approach to this is to make the inspect menu (command-I) active and working in a lot more places including the backtrace selection.

Double-clicking on values in backtrace inspects those values. Perhaps cmd-I should be used instead (and/or should be enabled in more contexts), but wouldn't it make more sense to think about these things before entering them verbatim as tickets ?

In 1.4, double-clicking on a frame in the backtrace brings up an editor window with the source for the function in the frame. In 1.3, double-clicking on a frame would bring up an inspector window for the function To get the same effect in 1.4, you need to click on the little gray triangle to expand the frame: you will then see a line listing the function, double clicking that line will inspect the function (double-click on other lines to inspect the other values).

There are a number of useful things one can do with the frame in a backtrace, e.g. expand/collapse, inspect, edit source. Double-clicking can only do one of them. The backtrace dialog should have a line of buttons saying things like "Expand/Collapse?", "Inspect", "Edit Source".
