When adding combatants to either a Group or into the
main Initiative window it should remember the last
Creature Type used. Kind of annoying to always have to
select Player each time when adding a group of PCs.

Move Up/Down need hotkeys. Shift-Up/Down or
Ctrl-Up/Down would be fine.

Let the +/- keys add to or subtract from the Initative
of the selected Item.

Need some way to just jump to the start of the next
round skipping over any remaining items BUT properly
incrementing/decrementing timers and such. A button,
menu item and hotkey would all be good.

Would like a Reset Encounter menu item under Actions to
reset it to the starting point.

    More comments on reset:
    My original thought was to just to reset the rounds counter
    to zero without changing anything else.

    The context was that for each encounter I would like to keep
    all of the PCs and their associated info from the previous
    encounter when starting a new one.

    That way if in the previous encounter some spell had been
    cast on a player it would still be noted and if needed I
    could quickly adjust the remaining duration. This also
    relates to the request for tracking overall game time.

    A confirmation dialog with a couple checkboxes would be
    handy. One for clearing all timers and another for clearing
    anything that isn't a "player".
