make relations display and relation browser more intuitive

make relations display and relation browser more intuitive

everyone who has used the advanced design modules yet (Relations) and created a long list of relations will know how annoying (even frustration) it can be if you need to search for that 1 relation that you want to modify. if your relation set i well build, then you mostly do not have to change more then a handfull of relations, but you need to search for these reltions every time again when you want to change them.

at today there is no possibility to mark these relations as being more important.

There is no possibility to put them on the top of the list.

there is no possibility to filter out some sorts of realtions, so for example coincident relations are not shown.

this is defenitly not an intuitive UI.

the idea that I suggest goes even further. it would be great if PTC develops a sort of browser where the user could manually add his "favorite" relations.

There is a relations browser.  It lets you sort and filter.  You can't make "favorites" but you can always create a variable, name it anyway you like, then set other relations equal to the value of this variable.  Then you can use the browser and filter out all but variables to show your important ones.  Not exactly what you wanted, but might help if your goal is to strip out long lists of less important relations.

I agree with Ward: yes you can rename the relations, but you cannot rearrange the list, you cannot make groups of relations. When the list is long, it is very difficult to manage.
