The Catalog Pane pop-up that appears when you hover over a layer shows the file name, type, modified date and location. Could you add the Summary? That would be most helpful. If it would take up too much screen space, I don't need the Location. I'm in Catalog Pane. I'm looking at it! It would save time Viewing the Metadata.

It would be great if we could customize exactly what info we see in the catalog pane pop-up. The detailed description does have more info, but I don't necessarily want the last updated date or the thumbnail. 

Similar to what was suggested by Cathy, I am more interested in the summary and/or description. On our ArcGIS Online page we have several items with similar names and currently you have to add each to a map before you can even look at the metadata or description. The only other option is to rename everything. I realize a good naming convention is always a good idea, but I also don't want to have to be overly specific just because otherwise it is impossible to tell for other end users which item/view is the one they actually want. It would also be good to be able to right-click and have the view-metadata option pop-up when looking at portal/ArcGIS Online items in the catalog pane. Currently the only options I get are add to map.
