Better session management? [message #517] Mon, 27 March 2017 08:27 Go to next message

I use Foxtrot heavily in research, and I love Foxtrot's ability to help me
find the "needle in the hack stack", but it's not very good at helping me
organize those needles for viewing later. Suppose I'm searching about
topic A right now, and I want to save all the current opened documents
(including all my highlights) so that I can reference it later. Right now,
I can only favorite a single document at a time (takes me about 2 clicks to
add a favorite), but I will often have 10-20 documents opened (that's 40
clicks!). I cannot easily save all the currently opened documents as a
session.

Can we please have better session management tools and options? What's
your thoughts? I want to see how much consensus we can have on this so
that developers can prioritize it.

Thanks

That's an interesting suggestion, and we will consider it for a new version.

Thanks for your input!
