Hi Peter,

I think your suggestion could be an addition to the proposed F2 Document Menu ... with the Treespec '\' key used to execute your 'jump-to-file' feature, when used within the 'F9 type menu'. This would provide the best of both worlds, that would include Internet URLs, linked to their 'document title' (listed on the Document Menu).

However, not sure if I understand your 'Spell Search' suggestion...


Bill
