I know, you all have got enough to do ;-) but nevertheless here a suggestion for
a new feature:

To efficiantly use the navigator it would be great to have a 'back' button like
browsers have. I've got more then 60 headings in my navigator and often click on
one of it to move the cursor - but often forget where I came from. Further: If I
find the heading where I came from it places the cursor at the beginning of the
chapter which, however, might be quite a different cursor position if the
chapter is a long one.
So this would work only if you put a little intelligence to the 'back' button.
Because you normaly move the cursor around also inside the target passage of
text the back button should remember where the cursor was BEFORE you clicked on
the navigator.

A similar thing is already built in: When clicking on a footnote and after
editing it, you can press 'Page Up' to turn back.
