Three ideas for Properties:

  1. Include Properties Windows as a tick-box option in View > Show/Hide. Right now  you have to go to each Topic and click on the little green arrow if you want to hide all the values temporarily, to de-clutter in presentation. (Of course, there's already a useful feature within the Properties menu, to specify visibility of particular Properties, whenever the Property window is open. The idea here is about showing or hiding  all the Property windows simultaneously.)
  2. Enable "external referencing" for Properties. In other words: freedom to upload/download Property values (e.g.  the changeable numerical values) from external spreadsheets or tables  (e.g. Excel or Word tables).
  3. Better stability of Properties' value formatting. Every time I update a subordinate formula, the formatting of the parent Property invariably flips back to NUMBER from PERCENTAGE - and I have to spend time fixing the formatting of that parent as well. Is that a deliberate indicator something changed lower down - or a glitch?
Thanks as always.

Good suggestions!

If I may add one:

4. Allow filtering on Topic Properties

Thanks, Mathieu.

Just to build on your good addition (connecting with an earlier suggestion of mine elsewhere):

We really need some way of "locking" any multi-topic/multi-property selection on/off so you can TAB through them. Today, for example, if you want to work progressively on each topic within a filtered selection, the selection is cancelled immediately you start to work on the first item and you're back to filtering again - and you lost your place!
