Quickly filter on a specific repeated segment

Hello,


When working with repetitions, I often wish to review instances of a specific repetition in their context (the segment just before/after is not always enough).


Instead of selecting the source segment and initiating a "PR source" search, would it make sense to click (or control-click) on the (currently inactive) R symbol to quickly filter on the specific repeated segments?


This would make the process (and the back and forth) that much faster!


Of course, any ideas to achieve this in a quicker way with the current implementations are welcome.

I agree with this request, and I add that such a facility would be useful also when checking a translation displayed in the grid in alphabetical order, for in such case there would be no useful context.


What about opening a small and adjustable pop-up window when passing the mouse over a specific symbol? 

 

I'l like to resurrect this request:


How about implementing a way to quickly filter all instances of a specific repeated segment?


I'm thinking of Ctlr+Click, as it is consistent with other uses of the Ctrl modifier, but this is just a suggestion.


Often, a more thorough review of repeated segments is needed before deciding to apply or disable auto-propagation (instead of blindly doing so) and this would help in that regard.
