Confirmation of setting Home Thought
Currently when clicking "Set as Home Thought", nothing is displayed to tell us whether we were successful. I'd like to see a little popup window saying "Home Thought set" or similar, and vanishing after 1 second. Or maybe a creep-on, creep-off status bar message.
If you ever implement our suggestion for assigning bookmark status to the PgUp, PgDn and End keys (using keyboard accelerators), I'd like to see similar confirmatory messages displayed.
I agree that acknowledging the act of setting the home thought would be considerate. In general, I think that all state-changing actions should be acknowledged. Gives kind of a warm "yes, it happened" feeling to the interface. Adding to dyslucksia's suggestion, I would vote for providing for especial attributes for the home thought -- attributes such as a special color, a different font, a unique icon, etc.
