RRC Trace Links Explorer

This explorer is cool stuff!!

From a GUI perspective there is an inconsistence from point of view :

Explorer : "Select link types to show"

In the side bar of artefacts you have to "Filter links"

In this 2 GUI's filtering/showing is handled in a different way.

It makes useablity a bit confusing.

Hi - thanks for taking the time to try the explorer out - and thanks also for taking the time to give us your feedback, it's good to hear positive feedback :) I agree it seems like we should use the same terminology in both places. The filtering you can perform in the explorer is basic at present in that you can only select the link types you wish to show on the diagram, so perhaps that is why the terminology differs at the moment, but you are correct they are both link filter functions and they are both launched with a button with the same icon.

Many Thanks,
Steve.
