The Insert Embedded view dialog should use a db open instead of bookmarks

When trying to embed a view, the dialog uses the user's list of bookmarks. This is an issue when the user does not have a bookmark to the desired database.
Furthermore, when the developer has a bookmark for both a production and development version of the db, there is no way to differentiate them.
I propose to stop using the bookmark list and allow the user to browse to the required db, then pick the view

so much this. Also after embedding you can't change the database, you have to re-embed

IBM, please for the love of god, fix this!

This is so inconsistent with the way everything else is done. This should be an easy fix and VERY useful.

I'd like to choose db (server/filepath) by @formula-statement to implement configurable apps.

Absolutely agree, after embedding you can not even see from what database this view comes. This should be changed!
And selecting db with @formula would really help a lot.

@6: You're right! There have been ideas for this:
2007-12-02 { Link }
2007-11-14 { Link }

But unfortunatly nothing happend until now :-(
What about specifying the vew name too? As possible when embedding subforms.

100%! :-(

> What about specifying the vew name too?
With the embedding if we set tick "Choose a View based on a formula", then the event "Embeded selection" described "Formula", where varying the name.
All have long been well implemented in the Outlines, there is 3 fields:
- Formula for kind of named element;
- Formula for database;
- Formula for name of named element.
I do not know, why not use the same mechanism?! Probably because IBM no longer positioned LND as a platform for development of workflow, unfortunately ... :-(

Voted for similar ideas.

If now in Composite applications, all sharpened by a ReplicaID, then let it be a replica, but that it can be set (eg taken from profile settings)!
