I support karelt's request. And I tried the method described by kinook but it is quite complicated and to my mind cannot be more than a cumbersome workaround.

I think it would be good if Ultra Recall could have one of two (or in the best case even both ) additional features:

A) A method to add a database to the favorites in a straightforward, simple procedure. Or any other way to give a quick access to a certain database - just like mentioned already by karelt in his first post. (The Recent Files list can help but it has its shortcomings, as also pointed out by karelt.)

B) As far as I see, Ultra Recall offers the possibility to create a database and to fill it with items. It seems there is no intermediate level as it is standard in many similar programs.

E.g. in "RightNote" you have the levels:

"Notebook" (or "File") --> "Pages" --> "Notes"

"Notebook" corresponds with UR's "Database" and "Notes" correspond with UR's "Items". But if I did not miss something, in UR there is no equivalent for the "Page".

In essence the "Pages" (perhaps it is a misleading expression) are databases which you can concentrate in a bigger database because you regard them as an entity (or as something having a strong connection). For every "page" exists a tab; by clicking on it you have immediate access to the page.

You can see it in the attached image:

I have a notebook/file (= database) with 5 different pages ("sub-databases") - every page is represented by one of the five blue tabs:

Blog - Diverses (Various) - Grammatik (Grammar) - Links - Wörterbuch (Dictionary)

Every page has its own tree with the various notes/items.

Of course it is easily possible to add aditional pages and even to transfer (either moving or copying) a page to another notebook/database.

As far as I know e.g. MyInfo offers also a quite similar system in its new version 7 (with different terms which I do not remember at the moment).

Such a system does not pursue exactly the same purpose as e.g. Favorites but there is a certain similarity:

For example when using the dictionary you will have often to look up something in the grammar. So it is fine you can "jump" to the grammar immediately by clicking on the corresponding tab.

On the other hand you may have a collection of data with completely different contents (e.g. a list of recipes or of your favorite movies) for which you could create a completely different notebook/database outside of the "entity" Grammar-Dictionary-etc.
