I’m not sure that I’d like to see this implemented. DevonThinkPro 2 has a list of recent and currently opened libraries to click, and it has caused users a lot of grief. See: http://www.devon-technologies.com/scripts/userforum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9422). These issues were one major reason that I switched to EagleFiler.
Bob would like the new library to open in the place of the original. I think this would confuse many people, who would expect the new library to open in a new window. And what if there is more than one window open originally? Another concern, for me at least, is that a library listing will take up precious screen space in each window, already crowded by folders, smart folders, and tags.
In addition to Michael’s suggestions:
- I’ll post scripts that make it easy to minimize and maximize selected libraries and windows.
- An app like iKey or QuickKeys can create a keyboard shortcut to access the “Open Recent” submenu.
- Aliases to Bob’s three libraries placed on the left-side of the desktop would offer quick access. If he has DragThing, he can create a new dock to contain these and can make it transparent and as small as he likes.
