Stuck with embedded listviews

There are still some reasons to use ListView rule -- even as of v7, there's a couple of features which are missing. I was curious whether some of the the antiquated restrictions (see post from 2010) might have been listed, but they haven't been. Let me count the ways:

  1. Can't repurpose an embedded for a summary drilldown (in v6, unconfirmed in v7)
  2. Can't show your criteria in embedded mode (understandable)
  3. If you're set Selectable, then the validate activity switches it to be in embedded mode (seems understandable, but that's not strictly necessary)

I suspect that ListViews, while not fully deprecated, aren't going to be updated anytime soon. I suppose the answer is to convert to ReportDefinitions. (Speaking of, is there an activity which converts a ListView to a ReportDefinition? Question was asked last year, but not directly answered.

When a list view has a join; features like sorting of columns and pagination do not work.

We noticed this in 6.3.1 not sure if this is still the case in Pega7.

Great discussion all. In the future, I highly recommend posting similar questions in the new Product Support Community that just went live on the PDN today!
