While we're on the subject of new features
Here's an idea that the friends at IFEX have recently expressed
enthusiasm for. Before I launch into it, I thought it would be good to
see if the idea passes the sniff test with all of you, and if you have
thoughts about how it should be implemented.
The request: having multiple edit screens open at once
My first thoughts about how to do it: Think of My Workspace as more of a
desktop. Clicking the edit link on an asset would pop open a new browser
window, which would hold the edit screen. Any procedures that would, in
current use, navigate away from the edit screen (save, publish, check
in, etc.), would cause the popup to close. Maybe "save" could become
"save and close." Clicking the edit link for an asset that already has
an open window would give that window focus.
Anyway, I'd be grateful to hear your thoughts about both the idea and
Thanks so much,
