How about preference option with keyboard accelerator slots to show link labels on both mouseover (as is now) but also permanently. Link labels should also be included in searches.

My feelings exactly, Jim. I believe it was jostber who suggested that hovering over the active thought should optionally show thought labels for all thoughts directly linked to it. This is a great idea too. I would like there to be a user preference with accelerator to display thought labels, link labels or both, in Normal View. There's no reason why the plex could not expand as it does now in Expand All, and instead of showing distant thoughts, show thought and/or link labels.

Searching for, and proper management of, link labels is long overdue.

Since the v.6 is in the late beta stage now, and no new features will be added, it seems like more link functionality will not come in a long time:

If more link functionality is a large task to implement in PB, it should be possible to add a keyboard accelerator for showing thought and link labels quite easily. If it is possible to view the labels with the mouse, it should be a short way to implement that for the keyboard too.
