Is this a bug or a feature?
1. Create a site with Tree View navigation enabled.
2. Create a document library.
3. Create two views: TopView and SubfolderView. Make TopView the default view for the library.
4. Create a subfolder in the document library.
5. Using the "Configure Views for this location" setting on the subfolder, remove TopView from the list of available views. SubfolderView should be the only available view for the subfolder.
6. My observations:
- If you are in the root folder of the document library, and you use the Tree View to navigate into the subfolder, then the view default settings are correctly honored; you find yourself in the SubFolderView.
- If you are in some other list, and you use the Tree View to navigate directly into the subfolder, then you incorrectly get TopView.
- If you are in the root folder of the document library, looking at TopView, and you click on the folder title to navigate into the subfolder, then you incorrectly get TopView.
Configuration variations such as changing the view definitions to make the TopView available only for the top level or for certain content types do not work any better.
Do others experience the same problem? Know of any workaround? I would like to give our users a consistent experience
