This plug-in will help to create and manage programming tasks by simply imbedding them into your script's comments. Click on any entry in the Task List to immediately take you to that line of code in the Script Editor.

Great idea. However, when I open the plugin with my rather large stack system in memory, everything is frozen for about 20 seconds, no mouseclick or keyboard response, finally the progressbar advances rapidly and then everything is normal. I presume the plugin is searching scripts for keywords but perhaps you need a "wait 0 millisecs with messages" in there somewhere so the process doesn't freeze everything when there are lots of scripts to search.

Looking forward to trying it out.
