Hi,

This is so trivial, it's almost a non-issue.

When I'm developing, normally the Navigation Pane is filtered by Forms.

When I'm working on a Query or Report, the Pane is temporarily filtered by those types of objects.

After the Query or Report is modified, and I inevitably have to select a Form again, the Pane is still filtered by a Query or Report.

The problem is, it takes a few seconds to realize that we aren't looking at the Forms anymore.  So I'll scan down a few file names - which I prefix by 'rpt_' or 'qry_' or 'frm_' - before noticing these aren't the Forms.

It's a delay of only a few seconds of confusion, but it does interrupt the flow of thought slightly.

How do other developers deal with this?  Do you always look all objects sorted by Date?  Or is there a hotkey to get only forms in the Pane?  Or do you not worry about it?

Does this make sense?

Regards,

DC
