[Feature Request] "go back"

edited May 27, 2022
I welcome a menu item (preferably in the toolbar) that allows me to go one (or more) step(s) back in My Library to the previously visited item where I had been before I stepped to the current item.
  • Very often I come from an item in My Library only to edit one item in a different subcollection, then I want to continue with the previous subcollection in My Library. A "go back" button would take the pain of localizing again the previous item (my zotero.sqlite counts 760 MB, my storage covers 690,000 files or 111 GB).

    This has been requested quite often lately. Either as a 'history' or 'recent' option that shows you a list of where you've been and allows you to jump back to anywhere in that history; or just a keyboard shortcut (or toolbar button) to traverse your recent navigation history. There was an add-on for the keyboard shortcut written by @jdfinch , but it has not been updated for Zotero v6 so will not run currently. It worked quite well under v5.
  • I heartily second this suggestion. A back button similar to the one in the finder window of the Mac OSX would be excellent, especially in cases where you accidentally click on a folder or file that you didn't mean to!!! I look forward to this!!
  • This would also be very helpful for me, and probably for all of us with larger libraries. Today I added a cross-reference to a note and clicked on it; suddenly I’m in My Library instead of the small subsubsubcollection I had just been working in. Sure, it’s only a few seconds to navigate back down the list and re-open the superordinate collection and scroll down again so that I can then re-open the collection where I was, but it feels laborious and annoying when, if it had been a webpage or a folder in the finder, it would have been one mouse click.
