where o where is a project in the hierarchy?
 
So an on-hold project appears for review and I think ďthat should really be a someday/maybe projectĒ ... but wait, is it maybe already in that folder? How can I tell? I canít tell. Precious seconds go by, and I canít figure out how to tell (quickly, without breaking much out of review mode) where an item is in the hierarchy.

Iím always a bit impaired at figuring this kind of basic OF usage stuff out , but thereís always someone here who seems to know ... * cough * curtclifton * cough *... Or any of a half dozen others. ;-)

I kind of think this is a weak point in the current design. The only way I can think of determining where the item is in the hierarchy is to use the view bar to temporarily switch the grouping to "Folder." Then switch the grouping back to "Next Review" when done.

I don't have many suggestions for a long-term solution. Maybe display the item's full library path in the inspector?

Thatís certainly what me brain crave. Just a simple bread crumb trail. Thanks for weighing in, Dennis.

This post isn't addressing whether there is a need to see the hierarchy...

here's a possible shift in workflow for you.

I use the hold or paused status of a project for someday/maybe.

My usual workflow is filtering projects by active.
When I review, I review my active projects.
And then review my someday/maybe or on hold projects.
