- Geoprocessing tool index window for ArcGIS 10.2
One feature that I have missed in ArcGIS 10 and above is the index tab that was available as a dockable pane. Then I found this great add-in that has been a separate download for each version of ArcGIS - it wasn't available when I first started upgraded ArcGIS 10.2, but now it is here!

- Revert to saved mxd - ArcMap idea
Wouldn't it be great if one could just zoom up to the File menu in ArcMap and choose the Revert item, to reload the map document (mxd) that you are currently working on to a previously saved state? Vote for my idea at http://ideas.arcgis.com/ideaView?id=08730000000by4u
