> Jump through the stack hierarchy via keyboard: stack>card>objects;
> Edit script or property via keyboard;
> Filter out objects (say only view buttons) via keyboard;
> Displays if a stack, card or object has a script;
> Close a stack script or property window via keyboard;
> Bring focus on 'Jump Scripts' or minimize via the keyboard;
> Hide or show Rev stacks in the list.
