There are two (I would think) relatively simple changes to the debugger that would make a huge difference to me. I would love to be able to look at two dimensions of a wave at once rather than the current one dimension. Its incredibly frustrating having to pick one row, column etc at a time when debugging. It would be great to navigate round a table like you would viewing the wave using the edit command.
It would also be fantastic to be able to view a wave or a variable value as a date and time in the debugger rather than as a number of seconds. I currently have to write code to print the value to the history as a time at intervals that I can then look at while debugging.
These are good ideas. We're working on a new version of Igor, and I'll keep those ideas in mind.
You *can* currently use the Debugger's Expressions pane to print secs2date(variableName) etc as a workaround.

+1 to Niall's request. This annoyed the hell out of me when I had a similar task to do.
