#214 Option Request: "Click Bookmark Item = Jump then focus on the main pane"


Currently, when you click on a Bookmark item, the bookmark sidebar has focus. This is a normal behavior and ok, but I would like an option where the main pane gets the keyboard focus right after an Bookmark item is clicked and the jump to that place is done.

Suppose you're using a dictionary, where A, B, C,... are bookmarked, and let's say you're looking up the word "cat". You click the bookmark item "C", and then you get the first pace of "C". You hit [PageDown] to start scrolling to reach to place of "cat" but THEN, since the bookmark sidebar has the focus, bookmark selection is scrolled instead.
Of course it's ok if you click on the main pain once before you hit [PageDown], but this is kind of awkward. For example, if the Magnifying Glass tool is selected, you'll have to use the Magnifying Glass just to start scrolling...

So maybe an option like above could be very handy for several users...
