I agree on all points.

The Reason browser looks fine... and back in R4 it did the job just fine. But it just doesn't work now, and it's never worked in Record.

Maybe some kind of index cache might be useful...

Oh, and one thing that would really, really nice to fix: the whole parent folder thingamy doo-dah in the main window... you know the thing I mean... it removes the Up One Folder option, and you have to click the drop-down and hope it gives you the Parent Folder option (cos half the time it doesn't).

Assuming someone isn't already working on this issue, or that it hasn't been fixed internally,
Props, whatever really, really cool stuff you are working on now, can one of your programmers just put it down for a month be assigned to rebuild the Record browser for us? Thanking yous!

Reason 8 ?

About this:

...we've had this little major improvement since Reason 6.0, which was huge (to me at least) but... there's still the issue (more so due to Rack Extensions being ReFill-like) of quickly searching our ReFill based libraries of patches, samples and loops.

Searching by type, by publisher, by patch designer and by custom user added free tags is still something I keep wishing (because there's less and less to wish for with Reason 7 due to be out soon )
Suggestions: Tags; Scope; Itch; IK OnlineAuth; New?; +1; RTFM
