Just a small thing perhaps.

The default width of the "Target in document" (Insert Hyperlink) window is often too narrow to allow you to see the list entries.

Suggestion: Allow the user to hover the mouse over an entry to reveal a tooltip with the same name as the entry.

Comment 2 R. Green 2022-11-18 21:19:13 UTC
The issue is that the the target in document window does not remember the last user-set size. So, if I widen it to see more of the headings, when closed and reopened, it reverts to the default width.

So the issue is really, can this be fixed so that the last size and position of the window is remembered when closed? I have changed the title to relect this.

The initial window will be positioned relatively to the opening window. Should we remember the position by session (closing and opening resets the positions), or should it remembered in any case even after the user closes the document?

As an alternative, we just remember the size of the dialog. Opinions?
