Better integration and usability features for Admin Tools

The Analyst client, Information Designer, and Administration Tools should be better integrated. There needs to be more productivity featured added. Here are some examples of features that would make authoring and troubleshooting much easier and less cumbersome:

  1. open an info link in the designer tool when selected in the data table properties dialog
  2. open the column element for editing when selected in an info link property sheet
  3. open the data source for editing when selected in the column element property sheet
  4. open the parent folder for any searched-for element in the info designer
  5. search for references (dependencies) for any element in the Library Admin tool
  6. open files and info links from the Library Admin tool
  7. some measure of feedback while opening a data source (instead of "Not Responding"), and the ability to cancel a long-running open
  8. Make the Library Admin tool non-modal, PLEASE!
  9. Export to xls (eg) / copy to clipboard results from find all references search in info designer.
