Starting point for ordered fragment displays

Reported by Jerome J. Slote | June 16th, 2011 @ 10:57 AM

Fragment sets outside of hierarchies have a dropdown control to select the order in which the fragments will be displayed. It would be helpful to be able to specify a starting point for the set as well, to reach fragments that would otherwise remain undisplayed through multiple clicks of the "More" bar.

Ideally, the starting point and ordering would also be supported in a URL, so that the user could build them into a link. And a header of some kind would remind the user that he's seeing a bounded display.

    I don't quite understand the necessity of this feature. Could you give me an example of a concrete situation where you need this feature?

    Perhaps this case isn't typical, but I imported some 5000 fragments from several other applications, and they've needed management. Scrolling through them, Piggdb can start from title "A" or title [ZZZ], but has no obvious way to start from title M, for example. Starting from M improves the user's chances of identifying duplicate or redundant fragments, misspellings, batch processing candidates, etc.

    Also, having been exported from another application that organizes records in its own way, fragment #4123 is likely to have some lingering relationship with #4122, but presently we won't see them together without scrolling from our first ID# or from our last.

    Thus alphabetic and sequential groupings help the user create the logical groupings that are Piggydb's stock in trade, and they're more manageable if they can be launched from an arbitrary start point.
