The Index View feature is very useful.

How about being able to index by Property definition and then view in value order? Great for prioritization and other decision modelling!

Interesting idea. We discussed this a bit when we came out with the original design but it got very complicated very quickly. Our first pass was to provide quick access to fields with properties but I can see where this would be helpful.

Understood, Michael. As you will appreciate, when you have a large map and power-filter for anything,  it can also be quite hard to read the topics without constantly zooming in and out. Which is where the indexing can be so helpful if you are needing to compare topics efficiently. The challenge is a little greater because the filter-selected topics deselect the minute you start working on them.

Anyway, it's fine that you understand the issue. Fingers crossed ...

Best wishes,

Filter / Select and maintaining the selection (or highlighting the results somehow) may be the fastest route to helping here. The indexing based on property and then values is definitely significantly more complex (when it comes to design and development).

Yes, if one could temporarily lock a filtered selection and then be able to tab through it, at whatever zoom level, it would be a help. Maybe a selection lock toggle would be generally useful.

Best wishes,
