Description Dr. Frank P Ferraro 2020-02-13 23:33:18 UTC
The process of setting bookmarks requires too much key stroke activity to get the bookmark in place.

Steps to Reproduce:
When a bookmark is desired in a text you place the cursor where you want the bookmark to be and then press CTRL-Q 
The problem is that the section where the bookmark is to be named defaults to "bookmark1...."  This requires deleting this default and entering the desired name for the bookmark.  

Actual Results:
The system works but it is tedious if you are adding a LARGE number of bookmarks to a LARGE document.

Expected Results:
Worked but took a lot of effort to set up say 100 bookmarks in the 400 page document.  It would make more sense to have the bookmark name picked up from either selected text or a single word of text which appears after the cursor where the bookmark is to go.  This would save a considerable amount of time.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
The instructions should clearly reflect the change if it is made.

Sounds to me like a duplicate of bug 105249. Please change it back to UNCONFIRMED with a short reasoning, if you don't agree.
