I would love to have local favorites (visible in the left bar, in the group list of a database) so that some important groups can be easily accessed while still being well organized in deep hierarchies. I never find the use for the global window because I have my three (big) databases open at all time in their own windows.
I’m curious… If you selected the Groups you wanted to Favorite and chose Data > Create Table of Contents, you could create an RTF file with links to those folders. Would that work?
Here’s something else that may work (and I think is kinda cool)…
- Copy the item link of a Group.
- Make a Favorites folder in your database.
- In the Local Favorites, press Command-N to make a new Bookmark from the URL on the clipboard.
- Select a Bookmark in the Group and press Shift-Command-O to launch the URL. This opens the Group in a new window.
That’s a bloody good idea (the second one)!
