    754754      <para>
    755755        You mostly work with a single type of item at a time. This is
    756         reflected in the menu system. For example, use <guimenu>View</guimenu>
    757         <guimenuitem>Samples</guimenuitem> to work with samples, and
    758         <guimenu>View</guimenu><guimenuitem>Experiments</guimenuitem> to
    759         work with experiments. In most cases the list view for that type
     756        reflected in the menu system. For example, use
     757        <menuchoice>
     758          <guimenu>View</guimenu>
     759          <guimenuitem>Samples</guimenuitem>
     760        </menuchoice>
     761        to work with samples, and
     762        <menuchoice>
     763          <guimenu>View</guimenu>
     764          <guimenuitem>Experiments</guimenuitem>
     765        </menuchoice>
     766        to work with experiments. In most cases the list view for that type
    760767        of item is displayed. The list view, as the name says,
    761768        is used to list all items. There are two more standard views, the
     
    768775          <listitem>
    769776            <para>
    770             This view lists all items of a certain type. Gives you
    771             an overview of your items. The view allows you to search
     777            This view lists all items of a certain type. The view allows you to search
    772778            and it is possible to configure which information to show
    773779            for each item. It also contains functions that
    774780            can be used on multiple items at the same time, for example,
    775             delete, share and export.
     781            delete, share and export. See <xref linkend="webclient.itemlist"/> for more information.

    924930          <para>
    925931          To really delete an item from the database you must use
    926           the trashcan. See <xref linkend="trashcan"/>
     932          the trashcan. See <xref linkend="trashcan"/>.

    11831189        <menuchoice><guimenu>View</guimenu><guimenuitem>Experiments</guimenuitem></menuchoice>
    1184         menu to list experiments. An example of a list page that can list
    1185         items of several types is the <link linkend="trashcan">Trashcan</link>.     
    1186         A typical list page is shown below.

     1193      <tip>
     1194        An example of a list page that can list
     1195        items of several types is found by going to
     1196        <menuchoice>
     1197          <guimenu>View</guimenu>
     1198          <guimenuitem>All items</guimenuitem>
     1199        </menuchoice>.
     1200        This page lists all items that you are the owner of. It has a few limitations:
     1201       
     1202        <itemizedlist>
     1203          <listitem>
     1204            <para>
     1205              It support only a limited set of columns (type, name and description)
     1206              since these are the only properties that are common
     1207              among all items.
     1208            </para>
     1209          </listitem>
     1210         
     1211          <listitem>
     1212            <para>
     1213              The list can't be filtered (except by item type)
     1214              or sorted. This is due to a limitation in the query system
     1215              used to generate the list.
     1216            </para>
     1217          </listitem>

     1219       
     1220        <para>
     1221          There are also several similarities:

     1223       
     1224        <itemizedlist>
     1225          <listitem>
     1226            <para>
     1227              It supports all of the regular multi-item
     1228              operations such as delete, restore, share
     1229              and take ownership.
     1230            </para>

     1232         
     1233          <listitem>
     1234            <para>
     1235              Clicking on the name of the item will take you to the
     1236              single-item view of that item. Holding down <keycap>CTRL</keycap>,
     1237              <keycap>ALT</keycap> or <keycap>SHIFT</keycap> while clicking,
     1238              will open the edit popup.
