Subject Re: CM Inheritance tree view , entity cross-linking

I thought about that too. Our problem is that unlike Eclipse we don't  
have a nice component for organizing the docked views, that users can  
shift around to their liking, so overcomplicating the view will make  
it unpleasant for many people.

Also the idea of links between Obj and Db layers does not contradict  
your suggestion (or the current layout), as it is about quickly  
jumping to a related object, no matter which view it is in.
