Interface suggestions: lists of words and navigation

Postby ety43 » Mon Aug 24, 2009 3:21 pm

Firstly, let me say that the first two hours of use are very impressive. Best of luck for further development.

A couple of suggestions:

1. It would be very useful to be able to see unfiltered lists of words. E.g., all words in all dictionaries and the words in groups and in individual dictionaries. Often useful for inspirational browsing when writing, for learning of new obscure words, for scrabble, etc...

2. It would be good to have a more quick and flexible system for constraining and displaying of the results. E.g., it would be great to be able to see a clickable list of dictionaries that produced a set of hits so that it would be possible to jump from one to another as needed. Currently, one has to scroll a lot, especially in large groups. Also (not sure how this would work and look like) it would be good to know which dictionaries supplied the words to a constrained list of words. Maybe dictionary icons could appear next to the words (optionally)?

Thanks for considering...

Those are all top suggestions. I hope I get to it sooner or later.

While not all what you are asking for, try clicking the right mouse button in the results window - you'll see all the dictionaries that had search hits. You can click the one that you need and it would scroll the results window to that spot.
