I don't know how I came to set a bookmark, which I knew nothing about. Ctrl+Shift+1 is not easily entered inadvertently. So I referred to the NoteTab Help facility.
I chose "Index" and entered 'bookmark'. Nothing.
I then chose "Search" and entered 'bookmark'. Nothing.
On the assumption that I must have clicked on some unintended key or combination of keys, I clicked on "Keyboard Shortcuts" and lo and behold, upon scrolling down far enough, I found BOOKMARKS (NTP). Unfortunately, I couldn't copy anything from the help display, but I found there
Toggle bookmark #1 and on to Toggle bookmark #0
Move to bookmark #1 and on to Move to bookmark #0
I find no hints anywhere as to what purpose bookmarks serve, except to be 'jumped to'. But after sending my message, I discovered that the paragraph following the bookmark in my text was restored automatically each and every time I deleted it. It took a while before I recognized that!
Bookmarks must serve some purpose beyond that.
Perhaps my coordination is bad, but I find it quite annoying that inadvertent key presses while in editing mode can wreak such havoc. Can one toggle keyboard shortcuts on and off?
