Description R. Green 2020-08-29 13:18:29 UTC
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 8061b3e9204bef6b321a21033174034a5e2ea88e

At present, when you use the "Insert Bookmark" dialogue, it closes after you click "Insert". This can make inserting a number of bookmarks more tedious, since you have to reopen the dialogue for each new bookmark.

SUGGESTION: Allow the user to insert as many bookmarks as s/he wants from the "Insert Bookmark" dialogue, keping it open throughout. This requires: (1) the ability to interact with the main document window when the "Insert Bookmark" window is open; and (2) the "Insert Bookmark" dialogue to stay open until the "Close" button" is pressed.

Don't see a reason why not.
