I’ve been using Ecco Pro for twenty years.  I’ve been gradually switching my work to InfoQube over the past two years.  Not sure what you mean by “with much more effort than should be needed…”.  It’s easy to set up InfoQube just as you described.  It’s similar to Ecco Pro but far more powerful and flexible.  Current development is extremely rapid and new features are often implemented on request.

I’ve been looking for an Ecco Pro replacement since the early 2000’s.  After many, many tries and disappointments, I’m confident InfoQube is it.

A question about filters: if I apply a filter, will the filtered view display not just the items I’ve filtered for, but also parents (for context) and children?

Hi Rogbar.

Good question and one we debated about when designing the spec.

We decided the simplest way was just to show the results in a list and not in an outline.

What are your thoughts on this, would you prefer to see it in an outline?

Thanks,
Peter

Yes. Based on years of using Ecco to do things no other software still cannot do, I’ve found that filters are useless to me without parents and children.

When I look at filtered results, the parents give me the context I need to understand where this item fits in the larger scheme of things. And the children are items that expand the information of the item. Other users’ mileage may vary, but for me, without those things, I can’t use the app.

Rogbar,

Got it. We may enable this through a global document preference or a setting specific to each filter in a future release. I would like to see what the implementation is like in echo or elsewhere to get it right before adding the functionality.

We have a long roadmap and I will likely publish a set of features and seek some input from users of 1.0 as to what the priority is to add them once we get 1.0 out the door.

Thanks
Peter
