Since the ID of every object shows in the left sidebar already, no need for Toolbox to get the ID.

I like this idea a lot and think it would greatly help research/helping users.

Search box: accept segment ids or permalink

Postby dbraughlr » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:53 pm

Proposal:
In the WME search box, allow the entry of a permalink or a segment id list. The editor can easily parse the permalink of look up the node by id and move the display area to the correct position.

The editor should select the indicated segment(s). If the segment is not with in the current view-area or the zoom is greater than the 200 m level, the new view area should be centered on the mid-point of the segment(s).

Rationale:
With the advent of chat and many add-on scripts, following a permalink has become not only time-consuming, but problematic. Pasting the permalink into the search window avoids reloading scripts and losing the chat window.

Allowing the entry of a segment id (list) facilitates precise communication of the segment under discussion.

+1

I would love to be able to copy/paste a segment ID from Validator into the search box and jump right to that segment - at least as long as I have to wait 5+ seconds for WME Toolbox to load in every tab :|


PS. I did a search for the word "segment" and a search within those results for the word "search" and this was the only post that came up. If someone else requested this feature, I sure didn't find it :D
