Re: Organization of Model Views
Just a couple of suggestions... you can sort model views using drag and drop and then open the Explicit Sort Order dialog to save the order. You can also use Move Up and Move Down buttons to move a single model view or a selected group of model views.
As for Save As new explicit sort order defaulting to the bottom of the list, can you share your thoughts on how you would like to see the function work?
With regards to filtering model views, you can of course remove the canned views, but sounds like you'd like more rules to filter and hide views. One short term suggestion might be to create various sort orders that place views you want to hide at the bottom of the list so they require scrolling. I recommend logging an ER.
