  1. Open documents in the same tab

    Every time I want to check a doc, It opens it in a new tab Which makes it difficult to navigate across the workspace. I would recommend open docs in the same tab and maybe device some mechanism to open the docs in a new tab if the user wants to compare two or more of them.

  2. Tree collapse/expand in the connections panel

    After opening a few options of the tree sometimes I want to collapse all and explore a completely different path, having the option to expand/collapse all would be neat!
