package search dialog in VS leads me into pits of failure
In NuGet 2.2 or 2.5
-I start my new Console app project
-I want to add a reference to NuGet.Core
-I do right-click manage nuget references for this project
-Obviously in my mind, I want to search for NuGet.Core, so I immediately start typing 'nuget.core' (or perhaps 'Ctrl+E nuget.core')
-I see that on the left hand side, 'Online' is not selected, (instead it is e.g. installed! or updates, or again taking me by surprise 'Search Results') so I frantically click NuGet official package source, trying to make it search the right thing.
-This deletes the search text that I just typed, and now jquery is selected
-I am unaware of this... in fact tragically I just pressed <Enter>, because I was expecting that NuGet.Core was going to be the top package search result.
-I am now installing jquery... NOOOOOOO (Unfortunately there is no cancel button. I must undo the jquery add manually.)
A few minutes later I am ready to try the manage nuget references menu option again... much more cautiously! This time when I am cautious, after I click to select the exact package I want installed, instead of clicking the Install button, I actually click the
'close' button, thinking that 'close will mean ok, apply my current selection, right??'
-Nope. Close means cancel! Forget everything I just typed all over again. Sigh. Start over again.
(I've run into these two usability issues not just once, but in fact nearly every time I use the dialog.)
