I'm not convinced that the current design can accomodate my work style unless it can at least be revised to show a columnar view rather than a linear one. What I would have preferred is an update for the few glitches in the AB (mainly it doesn't always refresh automatically, and those blinking tooltips are positively aggressive) and give it a new coat of paint if you think it looks too dated. Its plain text layout with clear checkmarks is much easier for me to work with. I do like how you can change layering order by dragging in the PB, that would be a nice addition to the AB.

Have you tried Geoff Canyon’s revNavigator? It is the smallest and cleanest solution yet. You get the best of both the AppBrowser and the ProjectBrowser in one package. We design some pretty complex apps over here. I like the fact that you can focus on a single card at a time. Filter brings you down to all the controls of the same kind, or the exact control you are looking for. Edit scripts, properties, and other useful functionality with keyboard and clicks that you can define. Drag and drop controls to reorder their layers. Support a dark background or not, which is something I prefer.
