> Most of the time I change between the projects/file starting with the left

> Changing resource only:
> 1) Click the resource menu -> a list will open.
> 2) Pick a resource from the list -> the localization view is reloaded.
> 
> Changing project:
> 1) Click the project menu.
> 2) Pick a project from the list -> the resource list will reload on the

> 3) Click the resource menu -> a list for the newly selected project will

> 4) Pick a resource from the list -> the localization view is reloaded.

> Changing language:
> 1) Click the language menu.

Thanks for filing.

> I would like to ease navigation in pontoon.
> To me, it would make more sense to have first:
> * current project (or localization)
> * all localization
> * then search field
> 
> Most of the time, my work-flow are:
> * go from Resource edition page to project page,
> * go from Resource edition page to all project page,
> * go from Resource edition page to my team page.
> 
> Occasionally, I go from one resource to another, or one project to another,
> based on translation status. You may wish to sort list by completeness.
