I know you can navigate back and forth between documents in a Group but I’d like to be able to navigate back and forth between viewed documents regardless of Group location. When I’m drilled down a few layers and want to view something I just looked at then go back, there’s a lot of clicking and scrolling involved to get back to the correct Group and location.
Is there a way to already navigate like this that I’m missing?
I use the shortcuts Cmd+ö (to go back - maybe Cmd+; on an English keyboard?) and then Cmd+R, which takes me back to the last document and group. Basically this works for going forward, too, but the “forward” history is cleared if Cmd-R jumps to another group.
I know this is an old thread, but I thought it would be better to continue writing here rather than starting a new one and missing all the history (punny reference intended ).
Anyway, I often find myself wanting to have forward and backward location history buttons like in a browser. Can you consider adding these buttons so that they can be added to the toolbar?
The Tools → History I found out is a change log. But what I need is a navigational history.
E.g. when searching and then finding a document, going back to the document I was reading before I searched (which is a very common task) is too difficult, both with regard to cognitive load and the user interface at the moment.
I think this is a very useful idea. I get around its lack by using the groups and tags HUD (Cmd-Ctrl G) but I have to be very carefully organised with groups spread across spaces to keep things manageable. Its very easy to have 10s of windows in no time at all.
