Trace View of single Item; List View for Indented Items

    By indentation of sub-Items, Items are containers as are Folders, Sets and Components.
    It would then be very logical to offer the same views whatever object is selected in the explorer.
    I suggest:
    - to replace the "View" hyperlink by a "Item View" button next to "List View", "Reading View", "Trace View" buttons in the frame for Folders, Sets and Components.
    - to offer the same 4 buttons ("Item View", "List View", "Reading View", "Trace View") in the frame for Items

    In that way, the user would be able to get:
    - a Trace View of an Item
    - a List View or a Reading View of indented sub-items

    Note also that Trace View button is greyed-out when a List View is created by selecting "Downstream ItemType" in explorer (Setup: Selected "Show Relationship in Tree". V8.42) what is strange since Trace View is available for any filter and it's possible (but time consuming) to create a filter to display the same items. A fix would be appreciated too.

    Extra step in unification between containers (Items, Folders, Sets, Components):  allow a relationship from Item to Folder or Set or Component as depicted in feature request Relate an item to a set / post 2
