When fleshing out family records, I often find myself re-selecting from the same small pallette of Record Objects but having to repetitively drill down from the top & through the whole spectrum of Record Objects.
(As an example, the family members often have the same group of 3 or 4 cemeteries. I’m processing from the same few Sources, cross-referencing to the same local newspapers & online databases. The Places they were born tends to be the same townships and had they had residences in the same general area. )
So, I keep tossing Places on the Clipboard (Mostly because the Place Tree has so much latency when populating the Selector and it is so tedious to drill down through.) And it helps… until I close the session and have to pick up the work again later.
It would be nice to have the clipboard palette of objects re-loaded automatically. Have it use a filter of People in proximity to the Active Person/Family (like the Degrees of Separation by @Mattkmmr ) and load a clipboard pallette of all the nearby People, the Places they referenced, and Sources used in that group.
Since you might only notice a selection is getting repetitive after the fact, another option might be to poll the session log and populate from the recently changed records.
Refreshing the pallette shouldn’t be dynamic. It would be good to have a button to force re-polling the pallette.
Or maybe such a feature should be a tool that pushes data to the Clipboard instead of a GUI button? If it was a tool, maybe it could have a histogram-based filter for omitting outliers… ignore objects that are only referenced once is a small selection … or less than half a dozen times as it looks at a larger group of people or recent records.
One further thing… sometimes you need to Refine the Clipboard pallette. Cleaning is easy with the Clear… but the Drill Down of adding is tedious. It would be nice to be able to one-click switch to the last-used mode in the Category View of an Clipboard object and focus on that object. Then I can load a few nearby Objects into my Clipboard pallette. Or, if an Object Editor window is floating, I can drag the nearby object directly into it.
