New UI Question: is there a way to keep these (right) buttons always visible, instead of having to hover over it? If they are visible I know where to go and click, but with hover I need to first put it above, wait the hover, identify what icon I want to click, and finally click (besides sometimes they just disappear because my cursor went a little out) - I didn’t realise how much I use those icons until they started to disappear and frustrated me. If that is not the right place to ask those questions, let me know where I should do it.

I asked the same on intellij slack 😂 AFAIK there is no way

It seems that it's possible on Intellij, but I dont yet see it on AS Giraffe:
Search for "Option to always show tool window icons"

Yes the advanced setting was introduced in IJ 23.1, so Giraffe won’t have it as it’s based on 22.3.

Yeah there’s a handful of changes coming in 23.1 that will be great for the new UI:
