Two items to add: 1) Support for 'Up' button, 2) editing of collection variables.

For the first issue, try

For the second issue, proceed as before until tab x.b is open.

Adding jwe to this bug report since he just checked in an implementation of structs (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/a4ea36915e38).

Confirmed. The Variable Editor should be able to do something better for the display of structs.

Structs and arrays of structs can be opened in the Variable editor, fine.
Double clicking on a cell containing a struct in the Variable Editor should open the struct and show its internals in a new Variable Editor tab.

Attached are a few pics of how Matlab (r2015) shows struct contents, taken from patch #8656 comment #37.
Relevant text from that comment, copied here for convenience:

gives the output of struct1.png (attached)
Then,

gives struct2.png
Double-clicking field a(1).d (~cell 1, 3) gives struct3.png

So maybe maybe displaying structs doesn't have to be that difficult and could be fairly straightforward.
