Show cube dimensions under cube in navigation pane hierarchy

Whit large implementations, where many hierarchies and cubes exists, a lot of time is spent on finding and scrolling to the hierarchies related to the cube being worked on. Although the forward and back buttons help a lot, it would also be great to have the dimensions showing under the cube in a hierarchical form. They would serve as links and would allow to quickly navigate to the dimension window for the dimensions relevant to the cube.


For example:

Cubes

->Sales cube

-->Product Dim

-->Measure Dim

-->...


Clicking on Product Dim, would navigate to the dimension screen without changing the focus to a dimension in the dimension list.

    Thank you for your great idea. While we cannot commit to a specific target version, we will consider adding it to our future internal backlog. If you can add further information about the context of this feature, please add it here so we can evaluate it more fully.

    Would it solve your use case, if the dimension names that are part of the cube list, would serve as links and enable you to jump to the dimension?

    The suggestion is not bad, but is not really what I was suggesting. It's important that the focus in the navigation pane stays around the cube so there is no need to scroll back to the cube, once a dimension has been opened.

    If the dimension names were also shown under de cube name (in the navigation pane), then opening a dimension would keep the focus in the navigation pane under the cube. There would be no need for scrolling back to the cube in order to open the next cube dimension (for example).

    I'm regularly working on a solution with over 100 dimensions and about 70 cubes. When a dimension is opened for editing, the navigation pane focusses on the dimension that is being edited, which is expected, but the dimension is often located far above the cube I'm working on. So if I now want to go back to the cube, to edit a rule for example, I need to scroll down and try to find the correct cube again.

    The forward and back button help but especially when there is a lot of switching between integrator, modeller and designer, it is sometimes cumbersome to load every page until the modeler is reached again. So although those buttons help, it would be much faster if, once switching back to the modeller, the edited dimension is still open but the navigation pane is focussed under the cube name.
