It's especially tedious to add a probe to a line that does not already have a breakpoint.

I propose we have "Add Probe Expression" as a context menu item when right clicking in the text editor gutter, and the same for right clicking a breakpoint in the navigation sidebar.

We could also add Option+LeftClick as a shortcut for the text editor gutter which will set up the breakpoint action editor to add a probe action.

Add Probe Expression in the context menu sounds good.

I'd like to reserve modifier clicks for a feature where the previous breakpoint config is copied, so option-click would copy the previous setup to the new breakpoint. Which would be useful for probes or other actions, like play sound and auto continue.

Maybe have a checkbox in the popover to set the config as the default breakpoint config.

Would also be great to have context menu to create probe from a highlighted expression in the text editor.
