In the Digital Signatures -> Sign Document | Select Certificate dialog, when several keys are available there's no indication of which key is which. No key ID, no fingerprint, no creation date, no UID. Only when hitting View Certificate... General the creation date is displayed (Valid from), under Details there are SHA1 and MD5 sums not related to key ID or fingerprint.
Is this issue still true?

I guess it is.

Read the comment above :p
(status should had been updated though).
You can always get more info per "view certificate". I don't believe the fingerprint is used by anyone but perhaps the issuing date. And we could save space with icons (and tooltips) for the certificate usage.
Easyhack with medium to interesting difficulty.
There's no key ID under View Certificate for OpenPGP keys either, only the first uid (Issued to / Issued by) and Valid from / Valid to for each key.
Furthermore, under Tools -> Options -> User Data, Cryptography, there are no details for the available keys whatsoever.
And fingerprints *are* used to identify keys, at least the so-called long ID (last 16 hex digits) should be displayed along.
If you think the fingerprint is widely used as primary identifier we should in fact add it to the main window. Everything else is well suited under the additional info.
