Select one (or more) items, and then right-click gives the following context popup menu options:
* '''{{man label|See Item details''' }} - will show the first selected item in an editor* '''{{man label|Make Item active''' }} - will make the first selected item active in the item view* '''{{man label|Create Filter from selected Items''' }} - will turn all of the selected items (which are of the same type as the first selected item) into a filter
