Bookmarks in Mathematica ????
I have searched far and wide (http://library.wolfram.com/ and this news group) and I couldn't believe that nobody has thought about it before. I am a relatively new user (<6 months) and I get progressively more and more frustrated trying to find things again. Say, a few weeks ago, I read some useful stuff in the Help Browser that might have been pertinent to a problem I am presently working on. Trying to remember the item or the context directly or through associations is time consuming and often fruitless. >From my present knowledge of Mathematica FrontEnd programming, it should be relatively simple to create a Bookmarks palette that implements, you've guess it, bookmarks. The Bookmarks palette should allow bookmarking all notebooks (including the Help Browser). Setting a bookmark should be registered in the palette as a "link object" and presented to the user as a button (name should be derived or "inherited" with the user being able to change it). By the way, it would be nice to have Help Browser (or maybe overall) History capability as well. Am I wrong thinking it would be a relatively easy task? Can anybody point me in the right direction?
