When I do a search and the instant suggestions appear, I would find it very useful if, as I mouse over the choices, I could see breadcrumbs of a thought's a thought's parents or the word "multiple" if a thought has more than one parent. 

The reason: homonyms. I am forced to including "parent info" in a thought's title so that when I do a search, I don't have to click through items to find the right one. Simple example: a data base of our solar system.  One of the items I might have as children for each planet is "moon(s)" with grandchildren for each of the planet's moons.

If I search for moon, then I would get 6 hits for children under Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. I might have 8 if I included Mercury and Venus with the child "none."  Having the breadcrumb as a tooltip makes it easy to pick the right one. Otherwise, I have to press Enter and then go through the search list, which for several reasons I'd rather not have to do.

Let me know if this needs any clarification.

Doesn't it already do that?

Your're right - for "homonyms" it works just as you say. I don't know how I missed that.  Thanks!
