The extra prompts have been a lingering problem that we look forward to dealing with in 220.127.116.11 under APAR SE71085.
Thanks for the feedback, and the detailed steps!

Prompted by Matt's feedback, I've been playing with the Library List View as well.
The Right-Click context menu is a bonus and I can live with this method to Move libraries Up/Down. (At least it is consistent with the Remote Systems View.)
Like Matt, I DO have a problem with the prompt to automatically activate a Connection. This happens when the View is initially opened (Show View) AND when RDi is started with the View already present. The steps I am having to follow are:
- Start RDi with the Library List View open as part of the current Perspective
- Prompt appears to connect to the first in the List - [Not a desirable behaviour]
- Cancel the prompt
- Use the Connections drop-down list to select the desired Connection:
the above prompt appears again for the first in the list - [Not a desirable behaviour]
- Cancel the prompt a second time
- Use the Connections drop-down list a second time to (successfully) select the desired Connection
- Required prompt now appears
Hope this helps, Steve!

Thanks for the great input on the Library List. We will be expanding this new view in the future, and as always would love Requests For Enhancements (RFE).
Can I summarize your feedback as follows?
a) Library List Connections dropdown should be ordered with the active
connections first, not Alphabetical order
b) Clicking on an inactive connection should not automatically attempt
to connect - an action should be required first
c) The Library List Data Table should be on a scrollable pane so the
buttons do not move to review the list
d) The Connections list drop down should contain an icon to quickly determine if a connection is connected.
The Connection: drop down is a shared component with the Object Table View Quick Filters. We'd also like to give the ability to connect/disconnect/verify connections from this component. Because of this, we'd prefer to keep all connections.
For a work around for the moving buttons, we did implement a "right-click" menu that has the options for moving the current library, as well as a host of other menu options. As with all of our "right-click" menu options, you can activate it with a Shift+F10 key operation if you don't want to take your hands off your keyboard.
Thanks for helping make RDi better for everyone!
