Title: The History Palette from 5.x
Post by Ikem on Oct 5th, 2016, 3:14pm

Perhaps I'm the only one, but I really miss the History Palette! It was the little window that collected your notes in reverse order of creation, allowing me to easily see what I'd been working on. I would love you to bring this floating window back.

Anyone else?  Could be a Get Info pane, for example.

A workaround for the moment might be to create an agent that looks for any note and sorts by $Created.  Make a new tab, focus on the agent, and use outline view.

FWIW, the pre-v6 History view was the selection record for the current session, and not the creation date of the notes. Indeed, note creation isn't recorded - new notes in the current session are only added to History until the new note is (re-)selected for the first time in the session.

The agent approach should work but presumes to user knows how to do that (at the moment the need for use arises). Also, for the small(-er?) number of users with big documents, i.e. many notes/actions/aliases, casual agent use like this needs thoughtful use.

Also, in a long session the History list can likely become a list of 000s items, especially if traversing a dataset working on attributes (metadata).

As old minor views like History and Locate were lists, could History not be implemented as a tab view-type, rather than need a standalone window?
