When marking a label it would be helpful if instead of showing all available labels, only the labels that would narrow down the search is shown.
For example. Let’s say I have the following three papers with a combination of labels:
- Paper 1 - labels: A, B
- Paper 2 - labels: A
- Paper 3 - labels: B, C
The label list on the left now looks like this:
- A (2)
- B (2)
- C (1)
Now assume I select label ‘A’ from the list. This filters the list of papers to papers 1 and 2.
What I want now is for the label list on the left to change to
- B (1)
instead of showing the original full label list. With a higher number of labels this would make it easier to find the combination of labels I need.
An alternative to not showing the “impossible” labels at all is to instead
- Clearly mark them as not relevant by e.g. graying them out, and
- rearranging/resorting the label list to put the interesting labels first.
This would make the example look like
