Ah I see, thanks for the hints. I didn’t realize that switching the views also switch ‘view-modes’.
Although creating 2 smart groups for each database seems to be cumbersome AND when chosing ‘Kind’->‘Group’ it also shows the Inbox, Tag-Groups, Sync-Groups, etc… (any hint how to avoid this?)
Here’s also something, which I think is a bug: When I selected a smart group (or any other database item), and then select a database listed in ‘favorites’, the right pane isn’t updated. This is at least very confusing…
You could create a work-around I suppose. One way would be to assign a label to those groups and exclude them from the smart group criteria.
I don’t know if this is a bug or how this works is not fully documented. You have to double-click on a database in the Favorites list to switch to it, or open it if the database is not already open. I’ve always thought how it works is the intended behavior, to avoid opening a closed database with an inadvertent click on a favorite in the Sidebar.
