When I search for a Greek word or form, I look at the Details in the window "Details for GNT-T." Often I need to drag three items in the "Set Analysis Display" to column #1, such as Gender, Number, and Case. Then if I switch to searching a verb, I must delete some of these items and drag in individually several other items (Tense, Mood, Voice, etc.).

I would like to suggest a clustered group in a single box called "Nouns" (or something more appropriate) that would allow us to drag once from this box, and have it drop in Gender-Number-Case all at once into a column. Then when switching to searching a verb, perhaps something like "Verb-Participle" in a single box would drop in the column Tense-Voice-Mood-Gender-Number-Case all at once (one drag with the mouse rather than six). Other groups might be called "Verb-Infinitive" and "Other Verbs." The latter would include indicatives, imperatives, subjunctive, and optatives. Another idea is to have the ability to make several user defined groups like I have mentioned above. This would allow a preferred order of the features. For indicatives, someone may want the order Tense-Voice-Mood-Person-Number instead of Person-Number-Tense-Voice-Mood.

Yet another solution could be the ability to select multiple items at once (with the Command key) and drag only once from the left-hand column of choices. This would be a little more time consuming than the latter suggestion.

Unless I'm missing a method to do this already, perhaps others can make alternate suggestions for a feature in the future that would do this.

Have you tried using TAG? This would seem to do what you want (regardless of noun, verb, etc), and it will reflect your preferences for how the tags are arranged (see prefs > Arrange Tags).

Yes, that does do something closer to what I was looking for. I neglected the TAG item in the Details for GNT-T window. I'll work with that for a while and see if that is sufficient for what I wanted. Thanks for the insight.
