Not the bookmarks I am hoping for, but a handler filter is definitely a great
feature to have.

Please do submit your work.

I care because when typing code, I don't want to have to think about what
machine I am using and adjust my fingers to suits. For end user software, sure,
give them the full OS experience they expect, but as a developer using a cross
platform tool I don't expect the environment to needlessly slow me down when I
switch machines and OS during the day, or week.

Nice tips, but still too many mouse clicks for what should be simple actions
built-in actions, but I will remember them for when appropriate, thanks.
